2 Kings 14:23-15:31; Jeremiah 50:1-20; Titus 1:1-2:8
The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He
will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His
love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17, NKJV
When God eventually delivers Israel He will enthusiastically
sing to express His delight in them. What will it be like when the
Creator of all things conveys His tender affections to His redeemed
in song? The prophet indicates that those experiencing this peaceful
melody will be unable to respond to it in words—they will
simply choose to rest in their Beloved. What a gracious God we
have! One that lavishes redeemed sinners with songs of tender affection
despite all the heartbreak we have caused Him. —W. A. H.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice.
