Stand firm in God’s promises for he does not waver. He is standing with you and he never moves away. He is your power and your strength. Lean in and not away, hold on tight, and do not lose sight of the hope he delivers.
The enemy will try to convince you that the only choice you have is to unravel before him. Don’t believe him. He comes to take everything you have to gain by choosing something different, God’s truth.
Remember there is much more. An abundant life awaits you. Reach for it. Step up and out of what’s comfortable so that you can grasp it. Praise be to the Glory of God once you find it.
Her very own leaders are rapacious lions, Her judges are rapacious timber wolves out every morning prowling for a fresh kill. Her prophets are out for what they can get. They’re opportunists—you can’t trust them. Her priests desecrate the Sanctuary. They use God’s law as a weapon to maim and kill souls.
Yet GOD remains righteous in her midst, untouched by the evil. He stays at it, day after day, meting out justice. At evening he’s still at it, strong as ever. But evil men and women, without conscience and without shame, persist in evil.” Zephaniah 3:4-5 MSG
