OUR LORD WHO INCREASES OUR JOY
Our day of rejoicing has come. The day of the Lord's help is here.
Isaiah chapter 9 verse 3 - 4 succinctly describes the scene of the Lord's victory and people pour out of their houses rejoicing at the victory of our God who delivered them from their oppressor.
You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder.
For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor.
Recent days have taught us the Lord is mighty and worth to be praised for He hears our cry for help and contends for those who humble themselves and pray.
Bless the Lord and honour Him whose kingdom is founded on Righteousness and Justice.
