1Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
2Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
3Know that the LORD Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
5For the LORD is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.
I realized something yesterday as I read this passage.....This verse has nothing to do with our circumstances! This is not a song of joy for the good times, it is a song of joy for all times!! Regardless of the situation you are in, this should be your response. Apart from all else....regardless everything......we should be praising God!! How awesome is that? How absolutely beautiful!!!!
Thank You Abba for showing me true praise and worship of You!
