A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning.”
This chapter can take on different interpretations but we see here God Himself is the only One that can deliver His people out of stress and gives comfort when we need it the most.When the exile for the children of Israel was coming to a close they were returning to their homeland singing with joy.When sinners are released from their bondage of sin they too come forth rejoicing. Then one day we will enter the joy of the Lord in heaven where we will be completely satisfied.But in the meantime as we journey along life’s pathway the One who performed miracles for the children of Israel can performed miracles for us that are redeemed by the Lord.He is the One that can deliver us from all of our fears.Turn today to God’s mercy, commit your soul to Jesus and trust Him for the salvation He offers you.
Most of us know about God, but that is quite different from knowing God
