Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Psalm 149:2, NIV*
“Let the people … be glad in their King” – not just praise who He is, but be glad in Him – be confident in Him, sure of His power, glad that He has rescued me and adopted me into His kingdom. Not repressed or fearful because of my circumstances or limitations, but vibrant and secure because of the character of my God.
Praise God salvation is more than just going to Heaven when we die – it’s also the joy we can have with Him on the journey.
Father, please forgive us for the times we take You for granted. May You fill our hearts, souls and minds with the light of who You are, and teach us to be truly glad in You.
Let this week’s song be our prayer: “You Are Everything,” by Matthew West.
