I know there are times in your life when you are faint at heart. Today is Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement. Many honor this day by doing no work on this day and they also fast from evening to evening. It is a day to lift your soul up to Me. It is a day to confess any sins of the past year. Because I shed My blood and became the perfect sacrifice not only to cover your sins, but to remove them, this should be a day to rejoice. Yes you can rejoice because as far as the east is from the west, so far have I removed your transgressions.
What a joyful day. It was meant to be a solemn day before I gave My life to purchase your eternal life. Today you can rejoice on this day. People are observing Yom Kippur in synagogues and temples all over the world today. They read the book of Jonah during their services. Jonah was faint at heart when he was in the belly of the great fish, but He looked upward to God and said this, "I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed, Salvation is of the Lord."
Today give thanksgiving to the Lord for the salvation that is yours through Him. Lift up your soul and rejoice because your sins have been placed in the Red Sea of His blood. That Sea is a sea of forgiveness and forgetfulness. The Lord will remember your sins no more.
