Wed 9.22 Sophonie Pt.2
Sophonie/Zephaniah is the heart and scriptural trampoline for today's song so I had to bring Zephaniah back. I think it's so important to notice that the presence of God changes those over whom He is singing. It's not a lullaby, it a purifying, rebuking, merciful, grace-imparting, righteous-imputing song of FIRE!
In Zephaniah3:11b-17 God Himself says of His love for and vigilance over us:
Never again will you be haughty on my holy hill.
But I will leave within you the meek and humble. The remnant of Israel will trust in the name of the LORD. They will do no wrong;they will tell no lies. A deceitful tongue will not be found in their mouths. They will eat and lie down and no one will make them afraid."Sing, Daughter Zion;shout aloud, Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart..."
The LORD has taken away your punishment,He has turned back your enemy.
The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you;never again will you fear any harm.On that day they will say to Jerusalem,"Do not fear, Zion;do not let your hands hang limp.
The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you,but will rejoice over you with singing."
I'm praying this with you and for you.
This week continues to be fruitful as support pours in for the vision that truly is for the French to sing to this singing God with all the Nations!
