Crowned with Everlasting Joy!

Scripture reading for August 8th:  Isaiah 34-37

Key Scriptures:  Isaiah 35:8-10  “And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness.  The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it.  No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beast get up on it; they will not be found there.  But only the redeemed will walk there, and 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 sighing will flee away.”

Isaiah saw a highway in the wilderness with a signpost:  “Way of Holiness”!  He noticed that only the redeemed could walk there as they journeyed to Zion with songs of joy and rejoicing in their hearts and on their lips.  The unclean would not have access nor would the wicked or any of the ferocious beasts.  As they journeyed towards their heavenly city, joy would overtake them and crown their heads–forever!

Rejoicing in complete joy:  “If you obey my commands, you will remain in My love, just as I have obeyed My Father’s commands and remain in His love.  I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.”  (John 15:10-11)
