YHVH Shammah (the Lord is Present)

Zephaniah 3:17 (AMP) The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.

Beloved, I AM YHVH Shammah, the Lord who is present, and I AM with you; therefore, you have nothing to fear. I cover you in My love, for I AM love. I rejoice over you with song, such is My delight in you. Rest in the peace found in My presence. 

I don’t hold your past mistakes over you, nor threaten retaliation for your wrongs. I stand by your side unwaveringly, and nothing – not your own actions nor someone else’s – can prompt Me to move. I AM steadfast, beloved, and steadfastly on your side. Quiet your soul as you rest in your faith in Me.

I AM Mighty to Save

Zephaniah 3:17 (VOICE) The Eternal your God is standing right here among you, and He is the champion who will rescue you. He will joyfully celebrate over you; He will rest in His love for you; He will joyfully sing because of you like a new husband.

Beloved, I AM your champion. I fight for your cause. I AM on your side and I AM mighty to save. I snatch your feet from the net, pulling you from the snares of the enemy, saving you because I love you.

Rejoice with Me in your freedom. Hear Me sing over you in love. I AM here. I AM with you, ever by your side. Rest in Me. Lean into Me. Know I AM here. Look to Me and don’t be overwhelmed. I AM where your help comes from. Always remember that. Always remember to look to Me and call out to Me. I AM ever present and ready to fight on your side.

Sweet Nothings

Zephaniah 3:17 (AMPC) The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.

Beloved, My love for you knows no bounds. Even as I rejoice over you – exulting, feeling triumphant joy – I also quietly reflect on the miracle that is you, the beauty as you offer your heart to Me. Beloved, My joy cannot be contained – it overflows in songs of love and deliverance. The past is gone, removed as far as the east is from the west, and I simply lean in toward you and whisper sweet nothings, murmurings of love. Will you hear Me? Will you take time to quiet your heart and listen?

A melody of heaven echoes around you, My precious one. Like a sweet, warm breeze on a pleasant summer evening, the sounds surround you and will lull you into that shalom-filled rest if you will let it. Quiet joy, exuberant joy, exceeding peace, and love beyond comprehension. Take My hand, beloved, and hear My whisperings. Know My heart. Feel My love.
