The Sovereign Lord has ... sent me to proclaim that the time has come when the Lord will save his people and defeat their enemies. ~ Isaiah 61:1 (part), 2a (GNT)
Paul writes: We want to work together with you so you will be full of joy... ~ 2 Corinthians 1:24 (part) (NLT)
God's salvation and schedule fills us with joy.PRAYER:
Thank you, Sovereign Lord, for rescuing us from the hold of sin and death. Continue to save me from thinking that I am the source of my salvation -- that if I just work a little harder I will become one of your good and happy people. That burden sucks all the joy out of me. I am going to look to you -- and you alone to fill my life with joy. Amen.
