“Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth! Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.” Psalms 100:1-5 NLT
How about starting the New Year out right...
...Shout with joy to the Lord - remember all that He has done and hold fast to that which
He is going to do.
...Worship the Lord with gladness - set the tone for your year through worship.
...Come before Him, singing with joy - as you come into His presence, let the song of
your heart praise Him.
...Acknowledge that the Lord is God - let Him be God in your life, give Him control.
...Enter His gates with thanksgiving; go into His courts with praise - let thankfulness flow
from you heart and praise from your lips.
Do you see the emotions and attitudes that will impact your relationship with the Lord?
Joy...Gladness...Thankfulness...Praise - all of which focus on the Lord.
May this year be a year where you experience each of these in your life as you focus your heart and mind on the Lord...for He is good.
