Miraculous change is the hallmark of the living God. No one can move a heart today, tomorrow and every day into eternity other than He. God is so mighty, and we are so small, yet His love for us pours through the heavens. Will you dare to enter into an intimate relationship with the Creator of the Universe today?
The remedy for fear, doubt, and insecurity is sketched out for us in Zephaniah 3:17. It presents an intimacy so elegant, so lovely, so sure. Because the Father loves us, we can look to Him with eyes of hope and a heart ready to receive.
The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love.
He will rejoice over you with singing.” ZEPHANIAH 3:17 NKJV
STEP 1. Recognize The Lord your God in your midst…
While the world seems to have forgotten God, we know that He has not forgotten the world. His love still reigns over hatred and evil; He is listening for your voice. Do not allow fear to steal these truths from You.
PRAY: Lord God, I claim your promise and will not be afraid or panic. for you, Lord, will personally go ahead of me. You are in my midst. (Deut 31:6)
STEP 2. Keep believing that The Mighty One, will save.
He is a warrior fighting battles for you daily and will not leave you on your own. The Lord God is our first hope, not a last resort.
PRAY: Daily I surrender my heart to you, Lord, knowing you will fight for me. I know that You are mighty to save.
STEP 3. Rejoice because He takes great delight in you.
The Lord God delighted in His love for you the moment you were conceived. It is hard to comprehend a love that is poured out so lavishly.
PRAY: Thank you for gathering me in your arms and carrying me close to your heart. (Isa 40:11). This very day vulnerable women and children across the globe do not know that You take great delight in them, and they cry out to be loved. Lord, lead me to reach out of my comfort zone to serve, to pray, and to give to those in need.
STEP 4. Give God the first moments of your day. He will quiet you with His love.
If we commit the opening of our day to this genuine relationship, we receive peace, strength, hope, and security that The Comforter, the Holy Spirit, offers as gifts.
PRAY: Lord, in the midst of a noisy world, I long for you to quiet my heart with Your love. I commit my mornings to sit in the Quiet Place and listen for Your voice.
STEP 5. Sing with Him as He rejoices over you with singing.
Think for a moment about the Creator rejoicing over you in song! Find a quiet place to sing back to Him in hymns, psalms, prayers to His name. Spend time on the most important relationship of your lifetime.
PRAY: Lord, I love to sing your praises and to open my heart fully as I joyfully shout your name. I thank you for such a sweet, unconditional love. Help me to show others of Your love by serving, giving, praying, and sharing Your Word across the globe.
Always Expect Amazing,
