Rejoice in the Lord always . . 11 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. (Isaiah 51:11 ESV) . .
Jesus paid the price of our sin, He paid the ransom price, money was not enough, neither good works , no, the only thing that could pay the price was His blood. It was shed at Calvary here the victory was won. We should be singing as we come to Him or return if we have gone astray, knowing we were lost, trapped and had no hope, but full of everlasting joy in the knowledge that we have been redeemed. . . Our days can be full of sorrow and sighing, as we cope with the pressures of life, but praising our God, brings gladness and joy. . . My wife was once having a dreadful day, our kitchen was swamped with water, the children were being a handful and with a mop in her hand, she started dealing with the deluge. Through gritted teeth as the mop swished from side to side, she started singing “rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. There was little joy in her voice as she begrudgingly wielded the mop, but she continued “rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. As she continued a transformation took place and she was filled with joy and the sorrow and sighing fled. . . Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. . . #souvenirs_de_vie #lifemoments #dailydevotions #followingjesus #memories #wisdom #gospel #bible #goodnews #praise #worship #christianblogger #manofgod #encouragement #christianblog #bibleverse #teamjesus . . #photos #photography
