Daily D – Zephaniah 3:17
The LORD your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will be quiet in his love. He will delight in you with singing.
ZEPHANIAH 3:17 (CSB)
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
(New Living Translation)
This verse makes it sound as if God’s greatest desire is bringing each one of us into a right relationship with himself. Come to think about it, that has been the case ever since Adam and Eve sinned. It is why Jesus came to seek and to save the lost.
John Newton, the former slave ship captain turned gospel minister said, “Although my memory’s fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.” The truth of this statement is expressed more fully in Newton’s hymn Amazing Grace.
This is a text to commit to memory. Let it impress itself into your heart and your mind so deeply that when all other memories fade, this one remains.
- He is a mighty savior.
- He takes delight in you with gladness.
- He in his love calms all your fears.
- He rejoices over you with joyful songs.
I will praise and thank God for his amazing grace.
Our Father, I am a great sinner. You are a great savior. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see. I will echo your joyful songs with songs of praise and thanksgiving. A soul that has been saved cannot help but sing of your amazing grace. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
