September 14: The Voice of Joy and Gladness

“Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” – Psalms 51:12

Read: Psalms 51:1-19; John 3:14-21

Child of God, I want you to know that God is not mad at you anymore! In fact in Zephaniah 3:14-17, the Bible tells us that God is rejoicing over us with singing. Oh Hallelujah! How would you like to hear the sound of God singing with joy?!! This is what the Gospel is. It is good news. The Bible says God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him may be saved. If you feel guilt or condemnation today, of feel rotten inside, I want you to know you don’t have to stay that way. Proverbs 17:22 tells us that a broken spirit dries up the bones. And sin is what causes blemish in our spirit. But God is reaching out to you today. He wants to heal your broken bones. He wants to fill you with His Spirit and fill you again with joy and gladness. Is there sin hiding in your heart today? That is cancerous and can destroy. Why not expose that sin and receive forgiveness today? Go ahead, tell God about it. Repent and open the door again to joy and gladness.
