I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness…
-Isaiah 61:10 (KJV)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse
What a cause of great joy and rejoicing to know that the gifts of God are glorious and without number. Who can count the many blessings that are showered down on each one of us day be day. He pours out gifts for the spirit, gifts for the soul, gifts for the body and gifts – just because He loves us. But of all the many gifts that are ours in Christ – the greatest of all is the garment of His salvation and the robe of His righteousness – for greater than the gifts is the Giver – who has come to dwell in the hearts of all that believe on His name. May we cultivate an attitude of humble gratitude and thanksgiving – for it is good to sing praises to the God of our salvation.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for your many gifts of pardon, peace and purity – of faith, hope and love. But above all we bless You in Jesus name for the greatest of all gifts, in the person of Jesus Christ, Who died redeemed us with His precious blood and Who lives forever within our hearts. AMEN
