Exhuberance and serenity…there is a time for both

Joy  |  December 27

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness; come before His presence with singing.
Know that the LORD, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 100:1-5

Father, when we worship You we sometimes feel self conscious about showing too much enthusiasm in our worship. We know that whatever we do, we must glorify You and not ourselves. There seems to be a time and a place for exuberance and a time and a place for serenity. Give us comfort with both circumstances, we pray.

In this Psalm You teach us that we should worship with joy and gladness. We will one day enter into Your courts with gladness, celebrating our redemption.

Help us remember today what eternity will be like. We will enter Your presence with singing and praise (Celebrate good times!). We will rejoice in the name of Jesus. Amen.

March 1, 2021 Are we a conduit of God's gifts? February 28, 2021 Should we expect to suffer as a result of our witness? February 27, 2021 When you meet Jesus, will He say, welcome friend... February 26, 2021 Private prayer, a compelling prelude to God's constant presence February 25, 2021 Love God and hate our neighbor...not an option. February 24, 2021 Do you mean that God knew whether I would choose to love Him? February 23, 2021 Did you say enduring persecution is a good thing?
