Sorrow and sighing will depart…why, when?

Joy  |  October 4

And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
”For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Isaiah 35:10, Isaiah 55:12

Jesus, we know that you paid the ransom to redeem us, to rescue us from the captivity of the flesh. We honor and esteem our flesh daily but forgive us for doing so more than we honor Your Spirit in us.

You have taught us that the flesh is a tool of Satan and that a war exists between the instincts of our flesh and the spirit we have within us. Help us to look at our bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit and not as a body that we should overly esteem and worship.

Your word says that sorrow and sighing shall depart and be replaced with joy and gladness as we draw near to You. What a wonderful truth. When we retreat from the cares of the world and come to you there is comfort and peace where there had been anxiety and stress.

If we were not to witness of Your love, the very rocks would cry out and the hills would literally be alive with the sound of music. The evidence of Your love abounds. Help us this day to acknowledge You. In Christ we pray, amen.
