“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you.” – Zephaniah 3:17
When things go wrong in life it is easy to despair and become overwhelmed by a sense of complete helplessness and hopelessness.
If ever anything seemed hopeless, it was on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. The hopes and dreams of those who thought that He was the promised Messiah were shattered when He died on the cross. But then God intervened and miraculously turned apparent defeat into victory. The sorrowful Good Friday was transformed into the triumphant resurrection of the Easter Sunday – when Christ rose victoriously from the grave.
Whatever circumstances you might find yourself in, however dismal, always remember that God is with you and that He is in control of your circumstances.
Redeemer and Friend, thank You that I can be sure that God loves me and is always with me. Amen.
