They shall rejoice

(James Smith, “Daily Bible Readings for the Lord’s Household”)

“They shall rejoice in their portion!” Isaiah 61:7

The Lord’s people often appear to have very little to rejoice in on earth — as the ground of their joy is invisible.

The Lord is their portion now — and in possessing Him — they really possess all things. The Lord Himself is their inheritance.

They shall possess the glorious land also, as their portion soon. It is a land . . .
where storms never arise,
diseases never come,
where sorrow is never known,
pain is never felt,
where the Lamb shall be their light,
and a present God their glory!

But they may and do rejoice along their way to this glorious land!

They rejoice that they have infallible direction — so that they can never miss their road;

And they have omnipotent protection — so that they shall safely arrive at the end;

They rejoice that they have unfailing supplies — so that they shall never be left to necessity;

and that they have a sovereign God — who overrules everything for their good!

Therefore they shall rejoice in their PORTION:They shall rejoice
in its greatness — for it is as vast as infinity;
its goodness — for it is the best in existence;
in permanence — for it shall never pass into other hands;
its purity — for it is perfect holiness;

  and in its certainty — for it can never be forfeited or lost!

“They shall rejoice in their portion!”
