Lifelines – “God is Disappointed in Me”


Today I’m continuing a series of posts that I’m calling lifelines. These will will be short posts meant to address pressing concerns that all Christians face from time to time. My contention in this series is that when we encounter suffering and sorrow in this life what we need more than anything else is a lifeline to hold onto. These passages of Scripture are meant to be just that.

Zephaniah 3:17 – "The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. "

I am deeply persuaded that many Christians live the bulk of their Christian lives with an underlying sense that they have somehow disappointed God. Whether it be their latest interaction with a co-worker or a recent spat with their spouse…many of the sons of Adam live in the shadow of God’s perceived disappointment in them. That’s why Zephaniah 3:17 is such an important verse for those who struggle in this way. It is a powerful reminder that God is not disappointed in you, rather He rejoices over with gladness! God is so overjoyed with you that he actually sings over you as a proud Father sings the praises of his children.
