Do you see God as distant? Uninvolved?  Do you ever wonder if God really cares for you? If so, then take a look at the promise found in Zephaniah 3:17.  In this video, I look at an exciting promise in one of the lesser known books of the Bible:

The LORD your God is among you,
a warrior who saves.
He will rejoice over you with gladness.
He will bring [you] quietness with His love.
He will delight in you with shouts of joy.

Not only does He delight in us–in the same way that we delight whenever a beloved child of our own walks into the room–but He is also a warrior fighting for our good.  He is with us at all times, ready to save us in our time of need.

Watch this video for more on this amazing promise:

Zephaniah 3:17 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

The LORD your God is among you,
a warrior who saves.
He will rejoice over you with gladness.
He will bring [you] quietness with His love.
He will delight in you with shouts of joy.”

Zephaniah 3:17 (The Message)

God Is Present Among You

Jerusalem will be told:
“Don’t be afraid.
Dear Zion,
don’t despair.
Your God is present among you,
a strong Warrior there to save you.
Happy to have you back, he’ll calm you with his love
and delight you with his songs.

Zephaniah 3:17 (Amplified Bible)

The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.
