Daily God Walk
Great Joy In Salvation
I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. - Isaiah 61:10
Many outside the Christian faith think of it as just being another belief system. They put it in the category or “religion” and equate it to Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, or any of the other religions of the world; but those of us whose faith has led us to experience Christ in a very real manner know the joy of his presence and the delight of dwelling in his house.
Peter, in his letter to the church wrote, “Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 2:8). Just like the old hymn says, “It is joy unspeakable and full of glory.”
I had talked with mark at work about the Lord and he was interested. After work we met in a nearby restaurant and I shared the plan of salvation with him. In just a few minutes he was ready to pray. We went out to my car and sitting in the front seat we prayed the sinner’s prayer together. When we had finished praying he opened his eyes and said, “Wow, I feel different.” He was forever changed by the grace of God.
It’s just as simple as that. When we call on the name of the Lord he hears us, forgives our sins, restores hope and places his joy in our heart. Peter calls our relationship with Christ, “inexpressible and glorious joy.” Shout to heaven – you’re redeemed and filled with his joy!
Prayer: I thank you Lord for allowing me to know the Christ and the power of his salvation. I thank you for the inexpressible, glorious joy that comes from knowing him. In Jesus name, amen.
Principle: Rejoicing comes from our heart when he clothes us with garments of salvation and arrays us in a robe of righteousness.
Affirmation: I rejoice in the salvation of my Lord and in the righteousness he has given me in Christ Jesus.
Reflection: How does Christianity compare to other religions like Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam? What does faith in Christ mean to you personally?

We have recently started producing a study guide edition of the Daily God Walk. This special edition is designed so that a person wanting to go more deeply into the message of any daily devotion will have a guide to do so.
Each devotion has a separate page that includes a principle found in the devotion and an affirmation of that principle to be used throughout the day. There is also a reflection section that offers questions and statements to stimulate thoughts about the devotion for that day. Finally, there is a place for the reader to journal his/her thoughts on the daily devotion.
We are offering you a complimentary, no obligation copy of this month's study guide edition of the Daily God Walk. Just complete the form below.
