In Touch Devotional 3rd February 2024 Message by Dr. Charles Stanley
TOPIC: A God of Unwavering Love
SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: Zephaniah 3:16-17
Today’s passage gives us a beautiful promise: “The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will rejoice over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy” (v. 17). This verse paints a picture of God not only as a powerful warrior but also as a tender and loving Father who delights in His children.
When we face trials, we can find comfort in knowing that God stands by us as a victorious warrior. He fights on our behalf, triumphing over adversity and defeating the forces that seek to harm us. In His strength, we discover resilience, courage, and hope.
At the same time, God reveals His gentler side. He exults over us with joy, taking delight in our growth and successes. Even in our imperfections, we are tenderly embraced by His unconditional acceptance and reminded that we’re cherished with immeasurable love.
When we feel alone or unheard, God’s love is there. He loves us, not from a distance but intimately—as a compassionate Father who knows our heart’s deepest longings and whispers words of comfort to our soul.
Bible in One Year: Leviticus 14-16
Thought for Today: We are precious in the sight of our heavenly Father.
