Thought of the day:
One of the most beautiful details of God’s character is to be permanently with His loved ones, with the precise purpose of offering them help, love and compassion, but above all being ready to share with them His divine joy.
By carefully reading the testimonies of ancient prophets, we learn that God is by no means just an abstract entity that dwells only in the ‘archaic’ minds of people anchored in the past, as postmodern philosophy tries to present to us, but He is a Supreme being, ready to give us all His attention, love and goodness.
He is a real God, who wants an intimate relationship with all people, a close connection and so personal that he can enjoy me and you as himself!
“The Lord your God is in the midst of your people,” said Zephaniah (3:17), “He is like a mighty man who can save; He will rejoice over you with joy, he will keep silence in his love, and he will not be able to rejoice over you.
In fact, a careful translation and correctly adapted to the contemporary Romanian language of the text presented today, proves once again His amazing goodness, because viewed through the mechanisms of the ancient Hebrew language, it acquires semantic nuances of rare beauty:
‘The Lord God,’ says the text, ‘is present in the midst of your people as a valiant man ready to help every man; He will rejoice in each of you with great compassion, and in His love He will cease from all that He does and will no longer be able to rejoice for you. ‘
So when trouble will invade your life trying to steal your peace and tranquility, or when the cold mist of night will seem to dissipate from you, remember your best friend, God. He is ready to help you and will give you all that is best in His treasury of goodness. Moreover, His angels will make peace around you so that you will be a happy man and He, God, will enjoy His friends … you and me.
