“…and the redeemed of the Lord will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake them, and sorrow abs sighing will flee.” Isaiah 35:10
Though this verse speaks of a time “yet to come”, I believe that it is filled with strength and hope for our NOW. God has crowned the redeemed with unending and eternal joy even while living amid a world in chaos and often hopelessness.
As I read this verse this morning I felt as though I heard the Lord say,
“Come and kneel down before me so that I can crown you with unending joy that will make your hearts glad once again.”
Many of you have been filled with deep grief and sorrows that have left you weeping as you look upon what has transpired over the past two years. There has been grief, travail, sorrows that have led to repentance and unexpected losses. Yet, I sense that the Lord is inviting you to come now and receive a crown of unending joy.
This crown will cause your heart to sing and once again be filled with gladness. It will renew your mind and cause you to see beyond the natural into the supernatural hope, joy and future that is sure for those who love God and who are called, “My sons and daughters.”
I see angels surrounding you as you bow before the Lord blowing upon you with the breath of heaven— causing sorrows and sighing to flee. This angelic “breath” is blowing darkness away and breathing life and joy into you. Death is blown away and resurrection life is raising you up into unending joy.
Take a moment today to bow before Jesus as he crowns you with joy that makes your heart glad again.
