Praise the Lord joyfully today! Serve Him with gladness as you go about your life’s routines. Do not be discouraged by your circumstances; do not allow your circumstances to discourage you!
You may feel that all around you is shifting, sinking sand but know that you stand on a solid bedrock that does not move, or sink – ever. Fix your eyes on the solid rock, keep them there, throughout the day and night. Do not be tempted to focus or gaze too long on the shifting circumstances around you, but instead choose to remain joyful, with the encouraging knowledge that your rock is solid and secure.
Psalm 100:2-5 (NKJV)
Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
