One Thing 2/16/12
Isa 35:10 And the ransomed of the LORD will return And come with joyful shouting to Zion, With everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, And sorrow and sighing will flee away.
I was thinking about this verse yesterday and how much hoped it offered. To be ransomed is to be set free. To be set free is personal revival. I think every time we take the opportunity to genuinely repent and surrender in a new place there is new freedom, and refreshed revival. Luke 8 says, “blessed are those who weep (over their sin) for they shall laugh.” Awesome word. Those who live in the sheer wonder of a repentant, and surrendered life experience everlasting joy, not occasional joy, upon their heads. Sounds fun doesn’t it. Most of the times our heads in this fallen world are not in a good place. Just think, everlasting joy on your head. This verse also say that if you have gladness and joy, sorrow and sighing will flee away. What a great approach to inner healing, instead of constantly digging around to find what is wrong, just come into a place where you are overtaken by joy and gladness. When you do, sorrow and sighing can’t hang around. It’s hard to remember all the yuk when you are partying on the inside. Have a great day On Christ.
