BAPTIST SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR NOVEMBER 20, 2021 (THE LORD REJOICES OVER YOU)
Bible Text: Zephaniah 3:14-20
TOPIC: THE LORD REJOICES OVER YOU
“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.” Zephaniah 3:17, NIV
A father and a son or daughter is not just a parent and a child, they are also big friends. A child is also the father’s greatest expectation; the most important project he has in life. He teaches his child everything he knows and makes every possible effort to make his child a better person. This kind of bond can never be broken!
This is the picture painted in today’s passage. The picture of how God cares for us as His children. This passage is an expression of God’s love for His children. God’s children can rejoice because He has taken away their punishment through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He has also turned their enemies away from them. They can live in safety and without fear because God is always ready to save them. He took away our punishment and declared us righteous.
He has promised to keep us in safety even in the midst of crisis. We have access to all these blessings because of our faith in Christ and our relationship with God, therefore guard this relationship diligently. If you have not given your life to Christ, do so today so that you can also partake of these amazing goodness of God.
Insight: The steadfast love of the Lord never fails.
Prayer: Father, help me never to take Your love for granted.
