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.
Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)
What we learn from this verse:
God is with me. > I am safe.
God is a mighty warrior. > I am actively protected from Satan’s attacks.
God delights in me. > I am confident of His love and can live without shame.
God will quiet me with his love. > I can rest securely because it depends on Christ, not me.
God sings over me in triumph and joy. > I know the battle ends in victory.

Oh, God, whether it’s a sweet lullaby or a victory cry, I’m thankful for your song in the night. I am safe and secure. I can rest soundly because you are always with me and have sealed me for your day of redemption. I am in awe that you rejoice over me, delighting in me. Father, may I sleep peacefully because of your triumphant song in the night. Amen.
