Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 34 - 36
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 35:10 – “and the ransomed of Jehovah shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
In this verse, we can see the picture of anyone who is rescued by God from their terrible circumstances. In the verse, it is the restored Babylonian captives that Isaiah is referring to, but with that bigger picture attached.
When God intervenes and restores joy, when it invades our very being, it is impossible for it not to spill over into everything we do and those we come in contact with.
Ever been around someone who has a bubbling jubilant joy – contagious, isn’t it. Today, let’s spread some around.
Prayer: Today, let me find the joy of the Lord to be my strength – and share it. Amen.
