“…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 and sighing will flee.” Isaiah 35:10
Though this verse speaks of a time “yet to come”, I believe that we have access to the timeless promises of hope given to all God’s people. This verse is filled with strength and hope for you NOW, for God has crowned the redeemed with unending and eternal joy, even while living amid a world ruled by chaos and what could be perceived as hopelessness. For those in Christ have been given a reason to live in unending hope and joy.
As I read this verse, 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 experienced sorrows and deep grief that have left you weeping and caused your head to be bowed low. 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 be filled with gladness. This joy will renew your mind as it comes like a wind that blows away the darkness. It will clear your sight, until light is what you see again. Angels are even now surrounding you as you accept the Father’s invitation to bow before His Son for this crowning of joy. They will blow upon you with the breath of heaven— causing sorrows and sighing to flee. This angelic “breath” is blowing away the fog and darkness that has distorted your perspective and brought sorrow to your soul. It is breathing life and joy back into you. It is like a heavenly CPR. Death is blown away and resurrection life is raising you up into a new and unending joy.
Take a moment today to bow before Jesus today as he crowns you with joy.
O LORD, you brought me up from the grave ; you spared me from going down into the pit. Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:3-5
