Today's Verse: Isaiah 61:10

Saturday, June 10, 2017

I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
— Isaiah 61:10

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This is God's promise to his people after their Messiah comes with healing and power to bless them with the Lord's favor. In many ways, this is our promise as Christians. We do rejoice greatly because God has delivered us from law, sin, and death through the coming of our Savior and Lord. Because of Jesus' sacrifice, as God's children we are clothed with Christ (Gal. 3:26-27) and given garments of salvation and robes of his righteousness.

My Prayer...

Thank you, dear Father, for making me righteous by Jesus' sacrifice. Thank you Lord Jesus, for paying the price for my sins to give me life. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for cleansing me from my sin and empowering me to live for God. May I, dear God, live in such a way that those around me know that you have made me whole and holy. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
