God Celebrates You.
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs” (Zephaniah 3:17).
Its easy for us to understand that we should celebrate God, but it is more difficult for us to realize that God rejoices, celebrates YOU! He is always cheering you on. Believing in you is one of the greatest gifts God has given to us.
- When you win the battle over addiction … God celebrates you.
- When you recover from loss … God celebrates you.
- When you say NO to temptation … God is cheering you on.
- When you are faithful to your spouse … honoring your parents … God is shouting for you!
- When you give your best at work … and no one notices … God is applauding your excellence.
Friend, no matter what label has been placed on you … God is telling you today, “Rise higher. Don’t give in to the negative people or negative labels. Refuse to settle there. I believe in you.”
The Bible says, “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13). In the original language … the words ‘I can do’ … mean “I prevail over.” Meaning … Yes, there are obstacles, but I will be victorious. Yes … difficulties will come … but you cannot be defeated.
God celebrates every time you prevail over the enemy … prevail over sickness … prevail over fear … prevail over doubt … God is celebrating you right now! God is rejoicing over you … singing over you … celebrating you!
I wish someone told me this when I was growing up in church … GOD CELEBRATES YOU! What is He celebrating – everything about you because He made you! He celebrates your gifts, talents, abilities and more. Listen closely for His applause today …
