WEEK 3: FREEDOM & SLAVERY
“He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives.”
Wednesday | December 16
Zephaniah 3:14-17 Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The LORD has taken away the judgments against you, he has cast out your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall fear evil no more. On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: "Do not fear, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak. The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
The king we are waiting for is a king unlike any we have ever known. He is strong, he is tender, he is just, he is forgiving. Here God is a warrior, a judge, a protector and a lover. He fights for us, he pronounces us innocent, he comforts us, and he sings over us. This is the only king who deserves your service. Pray that he would reign in your life.
