Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

WHO ARE YOU? By guest Andrew Murray
Do You Know Who You ARE?
Set your minds
on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now
hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3: 2– 3
Upon entering God’s presence in the morning
hour, a great deal depends upon our realizing not only who God is but who we
are and what our relationship is to Him.
The question: Who are you? is
asked (not in words but in spirit) of each one who claims right of access and
an audience with the Most High.
We must have an answer in our inmost
consciousness; and that consciousness must be a living sense of the place we
have in Christ before God.
The mode of expressing it may
differ at various times, but in substance it will always be the same. Who am I?
Let me think about that and
not be afraid to tell God who it is that shall meet with Him and spend the day.
I know, by the Word and
Spirit of God, that I am in Christ and that my life is hidden with Christ in
God. In Christ I died to sin and the world.
By His Spirit, I am taken out
of them, separated from them, and delivered from their power. I have been
raised together with Christ and in Him I live unto God.
Because my life is hidden
with Christ, I come to God to claim and obtain the divine life that is hidden
in Him for my needs this day. “Yes, this is who I am,” I say to God in humble,
Seek and expect nothing less than grace to live here on earth
the blessed life of heaven. I can say with confidence, “Christ is my life.”
The longing of my soul is for
Christ to be revealed by the Father within my heart. Nothing less can satisfy
me. My life dwells with Christ in God. He can be my life in no other way than
as He is in my heart. I can be content with nothing less than Christ in me —
Christ as my Savior from sin,
Christ as the gift and bestower of God’s love, Christ as my indwelling Friend
