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
What does it mean for the Lord to quiet us with His love?
He is not telling us to be quiet, and He is not irritated by the chaos of our thoughts.
He is simply telling us to “be still and know that I am God.”
He is glad when we make time in the quiet of the morning for prayer, devotionals, and praise.
No matter what is going on, we can think of at least one or two things to thank Him for that corresonds to every item on our “to do” list for His attention. He never ignores our needs and requests, and He delights when we remember to show gratitude for what He has already done. Amen.
