Discussion for Zephaniah 3:17

  • Charles m gosnell on Zephaniah 3:17
    This scripture could be applied to any Christian going through a trial of life. We are all rescued by our God who fights battles that we ourselves could not hope to win. We delight in singing praises to our God and yet he shows the same delight in expressing his love for his children by singing praises to them ! In the final summation God's final word to his people is love. It is in that great love that he will rest and his children forever.
