“Though dark days loomed ahead, there was hope for the future. This was Zephaniah’s basic message to the children of Judah.” New Living Translation introduction to Zephaniah
Zephaniah 3:13, “The remnant of Israel will do no wrong; they will never tell lies or deceive one another. They will eat and sleep in safety, and no one will make them afraid.” New Living Translation
“The main message of his prophecies is simple: It is too late to avoid God’s discipline, so accept it and turn from your sins.” New Living Translation introduction to Jeremiah
Jeremiah 1:8, “And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” New Living Translation
I’m not sure if we are looking at dark days ahead or if we are under the discipline of God now. I do know four things:
- I need to repent of my sin.
- I am not to fear.
- I am under God’s protection.
- God will provide food and shelter.
I have to keep my eyes on God.
