Verse of the day:

“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; 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.” (Psalm 100:5 )


Worship is so simple. It’s not a list of things we have to do or places we have to go. It’s turning our thoughts to God. Notice that the words of the psalm are not complicated, the psalmist is reciting facts about God and our hearts can’t help but be filled with joy. This is how it should be! We praise Him because of who He is…He is our Lord, the Creator, and Shepherd!

 

As believers, we have lots of reasons to “shout for joy to the Lord.” Take a moment and think about God’s goodness to you. Think about Jesus on Mount Calvary. Think about all His mighty deeds that He has done for you. Think about all the ways He’s shown His kindness toward you. You know what you’re doing when thinking about these things? You’re worshiping Him!

 

“Shout for joy to the LORD… worship the LORD with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs” and lift your praise to the One who is worthy of all praise!
