2009 Lenten Devotional and Prayer Guide

April 11

 

The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”  (Zephaniah 3:17)

 

God promises to take away our afflictions and troubles, and through this remove the effects these difficulties have had on our lives. By removing the cause God has also removed the effect. By accepting God as our Savior, we gain this promise made to His people, so why shouldn’t we rejoice as the Bible tells us to. I can think of no greater reason to be happy, than to have ended difficult times.  How often do we celebrate and offer praise for healing or the end of the trouble in our lives? We are not the only ones rejoicing when we accept God into our lives. He celebrates as well. The conversion of sinners and comfort of believers is a cause of great joy throughout heaven, causing God and all the angels to rejoice. [Written by: Charles]
