“Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation” – “This is the LORD’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.”

Today’s devotion comes from Mark 11:1-11.  Here is a link to this Scripture – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+11&version=NASB

I quote only the following verses.

“They *brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it;  and He sat on it.  And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.  Those who went in front and those who followed were shouting:

“Hosanna!
BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David;
Hosanna in the highest!”

Jesus entered Jerusalem and came into the temple;  and after looking around at everything, He left for Bethany with the twelve, since it was already late.  Mark 11:7-11.

———————-

“15 The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;
The right hand of the LORD does valiantly.

22 The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
23 This is the LORD’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the LORD has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25 O LORD, do save, we beseech You;
O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity!
26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD;
We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
27 The LORD is God, and He has given us light;
Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
28 You are my God, and I give thanks to You;
You are my God, I extol You.
29 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.”  Psalm 118:15 and 22-29.

Other doctrine is continually worried about what man will do.   

But, Reformed Doctrine is triumphant, joyfully shouting about the LORD and what He has done.  The right hand of the LORD has obtained salvation for all of His elect.  His lovingkindness is everlasting for His elect.   

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
He is just and endowed with salvation,
Humble, and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”  Zechariah 9:9.

But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.”  1 Corinthians 1:30-31.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him.  In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.  In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us.  …”  Ephesians 1:3-7.

This is the LORD’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.”  Psalm 118:23.
