The Warrior who saves
“The Lord your God is in your midst,
A victorious warrior.
He will exult over you with joy,
He will be quiet in His love,
He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. (Zephaniah 3:17 NASB)
Renewed in His love, we are spiritually invigorated when seeking the trail of God’s hand. Look back and then forth, witness His “quiet love.” He is in our midst! And if we believe that He is, we can seek Him and be rewarded by hearing His shouts of Joy. I would not be surprised to hear Him say, “Yea! Someone else gets it! Now they will be watching and come to understand how much they are loved.”
Jesus, our Lord, is the victorious warrior who HAS saved us to be with Him now. He has been there for me longer than I have known. My Lord was there waiting for His Father to call me. Out of desperation I came. Having had plenty of time to look back and then forth, I can almost hear Him shouting joyfully when I dwell on His “quiet love.”
Take time to see the trail of God’s hand.
Look back, then forth, then worship. (photo: My youngest with his youngest son, 4 years ago.)
