God’s constant and full presence with us is perfectly matched by His unlimited might to ultimately and eternally save us from all that would shatter our worlds and destroy our lives. God’s deep and intimate care for us is revealed through His heart that takes great delight in us, by His love that quiets our greatest fears, our deepest doubts and our fiercest LFTPOHs (Lies From The Pit of Hell), and by the strong, gentle, rejoicing songs that our God sings over us as His precious and deeply loved children.
“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you, [he will quiet you with his love] in his love he will no longer rebuke you, he will rejoice over you with singing.” – Zephaniah 3:17
All that our God is and everything that our God offers to us reveal His sovereign authority and His intimate love for us!
The Lord of all creation tells us that He is with us! God is with you. With me. God is with His people – each one, everywhere, in every way, at every moment. The Lord our God is with us!
The Lord of all creation tells us that He is mighty to save! Able to save us from ourselves and our sins. Able to save us from others and the sins that come at us. Able to save us ultimately and eternally from all the wounds, wars and woes of living in this broken, mortal world. Our God is able to save us for that time when we will live fully and freely in our God’s perfect and eternal kingdom.
The Lord of all creation tells us that He takes great delight in us as His precious children! Our Heavenly Abba is greatly delighted with us and with the joy we take in life. Our Abba is delighted with our playfulness and with our purposefulness, with living out our human lives as fully as possible and living them out in close relationship with Him. And our Heavenly Abba takes great delight when we show our love for Him and for His other children.
The Lord of all creation tells us that He quiets us with His love! Quiets us and calms us, holds us close and reassures us that nothing in all creation – nothing we have experienced, nothing that we have done, nothing that is in or out of our control, nothing in the earthly realms or in the heavenly realms – can ever separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39)! Ahhhhh…the quieting, powerful love of our Abba!
The Lord of all creation tells us all this as He puts His living, loving, saving, transforming Words into song and joyfully sings them over us as His outrageously loved little ones!
Amazing God! Amazing Truths! May we each choose to more and more fully trust the Lord of all creation at His Word and in the songs He sings over us!
