"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is my salvation. Therefore with Joy shall he draw water out of the wells of salvation."--Isaiah 12: 2 and 3
I have a confession to make: Isaiah is not one of my favorite writers in the Bible. His words are frequently high above my limited understanding. When someone in church quotes Isaiah, I often tune out. (And isn't that a sad commentary?)
But these particular scriptures resonate within me, perhaps because I am more consciously searching for ideas about and understanding of joy. If God truly is my salvation, then I need not fear. Though the world appears to be crumbling around us, I can remain safe in my belief in God.
Joy for the day: acceptance that God is my salvation.
