Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs.
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.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the Lord is good and His love endures for ever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.
– Psalm 100:1-5 (NIV)
This is a joyful invitation
to praise the Lord, the shepherd of His people,
and as we do so and pray,
let us gladly sing out to Him
and feel in tune with all those who are praying all over the earth,
exalting the one Lord in so many different languages
and in so many ways.
Even in the midst of suffering and pain,
and of problems, difficulties and let-downs,
we must encourage our heavy heart
and set our soul free,
and allow them to acknowledge their Maker
and shout for joy,
worship with gladness,
with joyful songs,
and to give thanks to Him and praise His name. .
The Lord knows me inside out,
and He relishes my internal joy and gladness in Him,
and will help me bring it to the surface.
