1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his [a] ;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Short and poetic, uplifting and exuberant. This psalm
talks about being somewhat enthusiastic about our
worship. We are to shout for joy, to be glad about
the opportunity to come into His presence. Most of the
believers that I brush across don't seem to have the joy
thing going for them. Enter His gates with thanksgiving!
Today, why not try to talk to God with the same vibrant
spirit that you use when you come across someone that
you have missed and haven't seen in a while. Thank Him
for watching over you and directing your paths. He has
an incredible plan that will blow you away. Shout for joy!
