Shout To The Lord

"Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not
we ourselves; We are His people
and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
and His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is
everlasting And His faithfulness to
all generations."
Psalm 100

Today in this day and age, we can't pick up a newspaper or listen to the news without feeling some sense of yuck after it. There is so much crime, depression, and loss. And yet as Christians when I read Psalm 100, I know I am blessed. I know without a doubt I am loved and have a reason to shout joyfully. God is good! God is Everlasting! God is Faithful! He made Us! He created this world! God is Sovereign and knows what each moment is going to bring. It may be hard times and we may not see an end to them, but God knows what the future brings and He knows He is there.
