Well may my mouth be filled with joyous laughter, because of the singular, surprising grace which I have received of the Lord, for I have found Jesus, the promised seed, and He is mine for ever. This day will I lift up psalms of triumph unto the Lord who has remembered my low estate, for “my heart rejoiceth in the Lord; mine horn is exalted in the Lord; my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies, because I rejoice in Thy salvation.
God’s grace is suprising in the sense that we don’t deserve it and can never earn it… yet it given to us freely. What a great thought today… to lift up psalms of triumph unto the Lord who has remembered my low estate. We have a great many reasons to lift our hearts and voices to the Lord with joy… joy inexpressible… joy that cannot be explained except with laughter and a smile that won’t go away. I have been freshly humbled and encouraged this morning as I read Spurgeon’s devotion.
The Lord Jesus is a deep sea of joy: my soul shall dive therein, shall be swallowed up in the delights of His society.
What incredible imagery Spurgeon writes with in tonight’s devotion. This is one you need to read at least twice to really appreciate it. Yet another reason to be filled with joy inexpressible and full of glory. Christ, our prized possession, is not only the keeper of the gates of heaven but also the key to which unlocks it.
More joy… more joy… CHRIST IS MY SALVATION!!
My soul, get Calvary’s blood-red rose into thy hand by faith, by love wear it, by communion preserve it, by daily watchfulness make it thine all in all, and thou shalt be blessed beyond all bliss, happy beyond a dream. Jesus, be mine for ever, my God, my heaven, my all.
