Welcome to Day 3 of our Valentine’s Day 2021 Devotional series. Today we will be looking at the Lord’s ability to quiet us with His love. The love of God is not weak or passive, it is powerfully engaged and is always ready to comfort us.

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing. 

(Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV) 

This scripture is full of potent truths which are applicable today and into the future. Over the last few days, we have looked at how God longs to lavish His love upon us and draw us close to His heart. Today we are looking at some other truths which represent His heart too, from the scripture above. We could focus on many things, but I want us to look at the phrase He will quiet you with His love.” 

No matter what you have said or done, forgiveness is the key to moving forwards in life. However, for many, the ability to forgive either themselves or someone else is the thing that limits, restricts and ultimately prevents progressWhen we choose to forgive, God chooses to forget. He wipes the slate clean and decides to remember our sins no more.  

The Lord, the Mighty One, desires to quiet you in his love but is there something hindering you from receiving this love? Does the enemy accuse you of past mistakes or sin over and over again? The Bible says that if you have confessed your sin and asked for forgiveness, then you are forgiven. The accuser may seek to accuse and remind you of your past, but your Heavenly Father chooses to place a blanket of His quiet love around you and makes no mention of your past sins or mistakes. This blanket of love covers and protects; it provides safety and security from the accusations of your past. The phrase He will quiet you in His love” can also mean Hwill renew and calm all your fears.”  

Allow His affirmation of truth to silence every fear. If you stop and listen, you will hear Him rejoice over you with singing. Today, rest in the knowledge that He loves you and truly desires the best for you!
