4) Forgiveness. ‘Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your
sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool’ (Isaiah 1:18).

voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it’’ (Isaiah 30:21 NIV).
6) Joy. ‘…in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.’ ‘Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete’
(Psalm 16:11 AV & John 16:24 NIV). All these things are waiting for you today; in
the presence of the Lord!
