Prevailing God


Zephaniah 3:17

For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. H e will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.


Have you ever had someone tell you that when someone truly loves you that you are comfortable without words? Isn't it true…when you finally don't have to share words you know love is around?


One of the translations of this particular scripture tells us that He will be silent in his love. Yet he will be calming your fears and rejoicing with you in songs. We are not talking about ordinary joy in this scripture we are talking all of His very being delighting and sharing joy over you. Is that not the most beautiful image?

Another translation from the Greek is He will renew you with his love…don't we all need to know that The Lord renews us with his love? I know this is true for me. Attend a retreat and spend quality time with Our Savior and doesn't he renew His love for you? Don't you feel it everywhere in your being?


In researching the scripture, one of the descriptions of God from the original Hebrew is Prevailing God. Our Father is all prevailing and He is living right here with us and rejoicing over us! What a beautiful way to start our day! Now look for God today as you begin this day remembering that Our All Prevailing God is rejoicing over you, so remember to share Him with others today!

Sweet Blessings,
