One of the great benefits, among many others of consecutively reading through Scripture is that you come across gems in the Word that you never realised were there. Here are two verses I came across some little while ago.
On that day
they will say to Jerusalem,
‘Do not fear, Zion;
do not let your hands hang limp.
The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.’
Oh, what words are these! They did me so much good at the time. Such a reminder of my Lord and Father’s kind interest in me. Oh what a God I have who has such an interest in me. If you are feeling a bit dreary this evening then savour those words, and I trust, you will be stirred at your kind Father’s interest in you.
And if you do not know this God as Father, then please consider Him. he offers his salvation to you in Jesus Christ who lived and then went and died on the cross for our sins. Believe in Him and you will be saved. Then you will know this beautiful Lord God.
