Because I believe Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead, I am overwhelmed with joy. I am dressed as a bridegroom or bride, resplendent in my robes of salvation. With His righteousness upon me, I am like a garden in the spring growing everywhere. Read Isaiah’s words of prophecy over us in 61:10-11.
I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God!
For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation
and draped me in a robe of righteousness.
I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding
or a bride with her jewels.
11 The Sovereign Lord will show his justice to the nations of the world.
Everyone will praise him!
His righteousness will be like a garden in early spring,
with plants springing up everywhere.
Praise Him today for your joy, your salvation and your righteousness. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection we are victorious and are filled with joy, saved and clothed in His righteousness! We are in right standing before God because of Him. Have a glorious Easter celebration because our God is alive, HE LIVES! HE HAS RISEN, INDEED! He has conquered the grave and because He lives so can we.
Happy Easter celebrating our risen Lord Jesus,
