So the redeemed of the LORD will return and enter Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee.
Most people love a good song. There’s nothing like singing out aloud to our God. Even if we don’t always sound perfect it is received into the very throne room of heaven as a sacrifice of praise.
Today’s verse reminds us that Jesus has redeemed us so we should be singing God’s praises right into His throne room. Even if we’re in the middle of a trial, God wants us there singing. As we do this we receive 3 magnificent gifts back from God…
- Everlasting Joy
- Gladness and Joy
- Sorrow and sighing flee
The key to receiving these gifts is very simple. We must stand in our redemption. We’re to say it, sing it and declare it everyday! We are the redeemed of the Lord so let’s say that we are!
This week lets enter everlasting joy & gladness by making sorrow and sighing flee. Let’s open up or mouths and say out loud “I am the redeemed of the Lord.” Let’s keep saying it over & over again. These words will carry to heaven as a song of praise and we’ll receive the rewards of God’s glorious gifts.
