Isaiah 51:11 ” The ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and signing will flee away.”

For the next few days I’m going to focus on this particular passage in Isaiah 51:11-16. Early on in the COVID 19 Pandemic these verses brought me much comfort as I realized the hope that lie within them. For you will see quickly that the theme of this whole passage is about redemption….of being brought back out of the suffering and darkness into the light and joy by our Lord. This verse holds promise for all of us…found in the simple word “will”. For someday, by His volition, the Lord will return and with Him joy and gladness as sorrow will have to flee…or as Revelation 7:17 tells us, “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
