God is With Us


Have you ever felt alone and overwhelmed? Maybe you are fearful or full of despair? Rejoice, God is with us.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Zephaniah 3:17 (KJV)- “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”

What the Verse Means:

The verse tells us to not be afraid and to not despair. Why should we be afraid or despair? God is present among us. He will protect us as a strong warrior. He is happy when we turn or return to Him. When we are anxious or worried, he’ll calm us with his love. We will also find delight in his songs.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Lord, thank you for being in our midst.
  2. Thank you for rejoicing over us with gladness.
  3. We praise you for quieting us with your love.
  4. We rejoice that you rejoice over us with you singing.
