Psalm 100 NIV
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.
We should be in constant worship with Him. How often do you call the one who saved us? Is it only to make 911 calls to Him; or do you call on Him to give Him thanks and glory as well? Remember, our Father wants us to come to Him at all times; not just when we are in trouble. He wants us to be in constant conversation with Him; in the Word learning His commands and obeying.
A man very strong in the Lord once told my husband to say, "Good morning Father God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit" when you wake up and pray. Before you even get out of bed. Greet Him first thing in the morning. Make Him the first thoughts of the day.
This morning I woke up extra early which lately is strange for me. It is nice though, as I've been asking for help in changing my ways. I praise God for the change. What was amazing was the fact that I was singing a song in my mind and when hubs alarm went off, the song I was singing was on the radio! "I will rise when He calls my name; no more sorrow; now more pain. I will rise on eagles wings; before my God; fall on my knees..." That's when I knew, get up! I knew to pick up the Bible first thing this morning; reflect on our Pastors message this past weekend which has been constantly on my mind, and read. Behold, I was led to Psalm 100 after reading some of the Scriptures our Pastor had used in his message to us.
I love being in the presence of the Lord. We have been blessed and prayers being answered abundantly. Praise God! All the glory is His and His alone.
Often times we think He's not listening and not answering our prayers. He is, just not always in the way we would like them answered; for He knows what is best for us. Give Him your full trust and faith, give Him of yourself whole heartedly and be amazed and blessed.
