Quiet You with His Love

Zephaniah 3:17: “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Have you ever longed for peace and quiet? The last three months I traveled extensively in the USA and Toronto for speaking engagements, TV interviews and a family visit.

This past weekend, I went to bed and asked God to save me from exhaustion and quiet me with his love.

Recently I met a woman who became a Christian and was baptized by immersion while in prison. She feels ashamed about her time in prison and hesitates to admit her spiritual birth and baptism occurred in a women’s prison.

I looked at the woman’s teary eyes and quoted the verse above. Then I held her hands and repeated, “He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Nowhere in Scriptures does it say that God will save you, take great delight in you, quiet you with his love and rejoice over you with singing only if you are perfect.

Dear God, help me believe you are with me and mighty to save. Amen.

Application: When will you allow God to quiet you with his love?
