Zephaniah offered hope to those who had already turned to the Lord. He exhorted them to deepen their commitment to God and His ways; perhaps God would protect them when He came to punish His people.
Zephaniah 2:3 “Seek the Lord [inquire for Him, inquire of Him, and require Him as the foremost necessity of your life], all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments; seek righteousness, seek humility [inquire for them, require them as vital]. It may be you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.” They had to seek 3 things if they hoped to experience revival and renewed blessing from the Lord- these are equally essential for us today. First, they had to seek God Himself. Their hearts were to be turned toward Him with a deep desire to know and love Him as their covenant Lord and Protector. They had to seek righteousness according to God’s Word as their way of life. They had to seek humility; laying down their pride and self centered agenda in humble submission to God and His righteous ways. Do you SEEK and DESIRE Him ONLY? Are you seeking HIS RIGHTEOUS WAYS? Have you HUMBLED YOURSELF to the point of only wanting HIS WILL?commitment, God, hope, humility, Lord, protect, righteousness, seek
