“The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)
What do you see? A lot of it depends on what you are looking through. Each of us come to the Scriptures with different lenses. We see through our experiences, beliefs, senses and personality. So although scripture is true, we may have a skewed view of it. For example, in today’s verse what do you believe? When you close your eyes, do you see God as a mighty one who will save you? Or do you have some doubts as to His ability or desire? Do you see God as rejoicing over you with gladness? Is He exulting over you with loud singing? Is He ecstatic in His love toward you? Or do you have a hard time feeling like a recipient of that kind of attention from God? Finally, can you picture God quieting you with His love? Does the very thought of God bring peace to your heart? God’s word is true, but unless we read it and challenge our thinking, we will not align our beliefs with God’s. Today, ask God to help make His word clear to you and start to see what He wants you to.
Father, help me read Your word. Holy Spirit, help me to see what You really want me to see and to believe it with all of my heart. In Jesus’ name.
