Today's Verse : Joel 2:21


February 21, 2012

Be not afraid, O land; be glad and rejoice. Surely the LORD has
done great things.
-- Joel 2:21

This reassurance from God is given to a people facing desperate
times, which were brought on by God to lead them to repent. Their
land lies desolate and decimated from drought, plagues, and poor
harvests. God, however, is now promising to bless them if they will
return to him with all their hearts. The LORD, the covenant God of
Israel, will do great things to bring his people to deliverance
through their repentance and his gracious power. The land can
rejoice and be glad. So should his people! So should we! Because of
Jesus, we know that "the LORD has done great things" for us!

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your incredible work in our
world. Thank you for your incredible work in my little part of that
world. Thank you for your deliverance in Jesus. Thank you for the
victory over death. Thank you for the incredible outpouring of your
grace and mercy. Thank you for the gift of your Holy Spirit. Thank
you for the Scriptures which your Spirit inspired and uses to teach
us. Thank you for a family of friends in your Church. Thank you ...
in Jesus' name. Amen.
