Zephaniah 3:17: The Lord your God is in your midst

“The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.

Zephaniah 3:17 AMP

The Lord is in our midst.  No matter where we go in life the Holy Spirit lives within us and empowers us to accomplish the plans and purposes of the Father’s kingdom upon the earth.  We live in very dark times that seem to only be getting darker by the day.  As people more and more turn their hearts to wickedness, we who are in Christ must shine as bright lights in this very dark hour.

There is a mighty harvest before us and we cannot allow the lies and deceptions of the enemy to deter or hinder what God desires to do in our midst.  He is seeking a people who will seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.  He is seeking a people who will simply be a house of prayer and know who they are in Christ and understand that authority they have.

As the Holy Spirit leads and gives us opportunity we need to plant seeds of God’s word into the hearts of those around us.  As we abide in Him and develop deep intimacy with the Lord we will become more and more sensitive to the work and leading of the Holy Spirit.  No matter what we face in this hour we have nothing to fear.  Our Father in Heaven holds us in the palm of His hand and no one can snatch us from His hand.  May we draw near and abide daily and keep our hearts and minds fixed upon Jesus.
