It's easy to talk about rejoicing and praise on Sunday since I spent the morning in church participating in corporate worship. But what about the rest of the week? It's easy to talk about rejoicing and praise when "life is good". But what about when trials come my way. Paul tells us in Philippians 4:4 to "Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS......"
The Psalms are good devotional readings for preparing our hearts for praise and rejoicing. Many of the Psalms start out with worries and concerns by the Psalm writer; however, we are brought to see that even in times of fear, worries, and trials (Psalm 28), we can rejoice for God is always there with us. And in our times of sorrow for sins that we have committed against God (Psalm 51), He is ever faithful to forgive. That should definitely cause our hearts to rejoice.........ALWAYS! I encourage you to read through the Psalms and rejoice!
The Bible verse for the Word Art Wednesday challenge is Psalm 33:1 - "Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous; for praise is comely for the upright."
