God: does this for us….
Zephaniah 3:17-19 (KJV) “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden. Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.”
In every situation that we have found ourselves, the hands of God is still stretched out with the most appropriate deliverance for us. He takes into consideration that we are trusting in Him and need oversight in our lives.
At times we can tell ourselves that we are the ones doing the thing to get ourselves out of the trials and the burdens, but our God is still taking care of business.
His kind of protection cannot be minimized or dismissed. If we can acknowledge in a pure and true way that we are not of ourselves, then it might be easier to really trust that God is in control and He has got our backs in all we go through.
