Zeph. 3:17 The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
Friends, if you are suffering or fearful or afraid that the trials you are facing mean He’s after you somehow… You know, in the bad way. This is not how our God works. If He is chasing you down, He’s chasing you back to Himself. If he’s pressing you, He’s pressing you into Himself. If you feel He has you in the fire, it is not to consume you but to refine you and make you shine.
His most amazing blessings fall down out of some of the blackest clouds. Open your hands. Lift up your face and Let. it. rain. He’ll wash you but He won’t wash you away.
What if it seems dark because you are in the shadow of His wings?
