The people who know the celebratory shout are truly happy!
They walk in the light of your presence, Lord!
They rejoice in your name all day long
and are uplifted by your righteousness
because you are the splendor of their strength.
By your favor you make us strong
because our shield is the Lord’s own;
our king belongs to the holy one of Israel!
Food For Thought:
In this Psalm, we are reminded by the Psalmist of the importance of praising God for the many wonderful things that God does in our lives. It is important to show our praise to God. Today, I encourage you to write a Psalm offering praise for the many wondrous ways that God is involved in your life and the life of those around you.
Holy God of Israel, ever present and moving among your people, draw us near to you, that in place of hostility there may be peace; in place of loneliness, compassion; in place of aimlessness, direction; and in place of sickness, healing; through Christ Jesus, in whom you draw near to us. Amen.
