I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
Psalm 104:33-34 (KJV)
True and lasting joy comes out of right relationship with God. We know we are in right relationship with Him when we can find a song of praise in our hearts, when our meditation of Him brings us to a place of delight. Our approach to God should never be from a place of insecurity, wondering whether or not we have been accepted and approved, but much rather from a place of childlike faith and simple joy. This acts as a reminder to our own hearts that we can trust Him in all circumstances. And so let us know today the power of a heart filled with praise, and that God has called us to rejoice and be glad in Him.
