I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
Today’s devotion can be described as ‘short and sweet’ because I simply want you to take a few minutes to think about a couple of things before spending time rejoicing in what the LORD has done for you.
Here are the two things I want you to think about:
1—The meaning of JOY. Joy is knowing that no matter what happens, God is there and has it under control.
2—What does it mean to be saved? We’re all about telling people how great heaven is and how wonderful it will be to be there, but no one wants to talk about the reality of Hell. Sadly, Jesus tells us that there will be more people there than in heaven. Why? Because we don’t put on our robes of righteousness and wear them with pride (the good kind), humility, and thanks.
So rejoice in the LORD for what he has done for you.
Challenge: Sing or write down the words to your favorite praise songs. Think about the message they hold.
