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.

Meet God at the Watch Tower
This post is from my notes at the Sunday Morning Bible Study
Find a Place to Meet with God
The prophet Habakkuk had
found a place where he could meet God and they would hold a conversation.This is what each of us must do.To find a place where we are comfortable and
meet God so He can speak to us and us to Him.
2:1I will stand upon my watch, and set
me upon the tower, and will look forth to see what he will speak with me, and
what I shall answer concerning my complaint.
The prophet was upset with
God because he had figured out what he thought God should do; and things were
not happening according to the prophet’s plan.He was willing to listen and then God spoke and told him to write it all
Then the LORD said to me, "Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a
runner can carry the correct message to others.
It is good for you to keep a
journal and write down things God is saying to you.Be still before God and listen for
answers.Write down your dreams and
visions and even your prayers.Be still
and wait to receive from God.The
important thing is our heart attitude.
Sit and wait for this is a
relationship and is not to be hurried.
Our foundation of Faith is to
daily meet God and it is okay to ask questions.
How does it help you or the
Body of Christ?Is the message from God
for every one, or simply personal?It
will become clear as you wait.
The prophet’s vision was
timed for later, but it was true and at the right time it would be fulfilled.
Be careful not to be proud or
lifted up.Realize the just shall live
by faith.We must trust even if we don’t
Faith is humble submission
and personal loyalty to Him as our savior and Lord.Looking only to Jesus as the basis of our
salvation and acceptance before God; and acknowledging His absolute right to
give orders and to have the final word about what is right and acceptable
behavior and conduct on our part.
people we are to have a moral uprightness and steadfastness to follow His ways
no matter what the prevailing evil around us.Regardless of the situation is and what ever happens - - we chose to
remain upright and trust God.
We are not to worry, for God
is in control and He will take care of us and bless us.
Every day, come to “your
tower” to meet God.
At my work place, I must make
sure I am doing everything according to the “rules” of the company, State and
Federal.The rules may not be according
to my opinion, but I am to follow them regardless.Continue to check your attitude.
We follow Christ and
acknowledge he has given us guidelines, procedures of importance.We are not to compromise and take short
cuts.Be comfortable as you obey
God.He demands moral uprightness and
expects us to follow His will.He
calculates everything to shift into His general plan regardless of our present
culture.His “right” is absolute and
there is NO turning with Him.
What God shares with you,
understand it may come to pass at a later season; however though
it delays, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
