Sept 25 – Daily Devotion

Praise the Lord saints of the most high God. Scripture reading Isaiah 60:20; Isaiah 14:3 & Nehemiah 8:10

The days of your mourning shall be ended. In the book of Nehemiah the Lord says, Do not sorrow for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Some of us still want to grieve over the past losses and want to park our tents for some more time like Naomi. God was taking her into a new season of abundance joy and peace but she wanted to brood on the past for some more time. She still wanted to wear her sack cloth and wanted to be called Mara. Some of you are doing the same. God says change has already come but you are the one blocking it. All Naomi had to do was to embrace her change of season from a season of famine to a season  of harvest through Ruth. God will send people your way to help you.  Psalms 126:5-6. Those who sow in tears, shall reap in joy. Isaiah 14:3 says the Lord gives you rest from your sorrow. The days of your hard labour have come to an end. Rejoice and be glad your change has come. Live it. God bless you.
