Make a joyful noise to the LORD in anticipation of open heavens during this programme


“Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.” Psalm 100:1-2

We thank God for the blessings and strength of the first 3 days of this spiritual exercise. Today, by the grace of God we will be tapping into the power of joy and rejoicing as a vital key to our More than conquerors victorious Christian living.

This psalm is a reminder, a call to praise and worship the Lord, with joy and thanksgiving. It is a reminder to praise God for who He is, as the Creator and Redeemer. We belong to Him, the Sovereign ruler, we are His people, and He is our benefactor. We are the sheep of His pasture. God cares for us, and we can trust in His infinite mercy and goodness. This psalm gives a call to enter the place of God’s presence, His gates, and courts with praise.

When we remember that unexpected and undeserved gift of salvation; when we remind ourselves of the joy that we first felt when we received that gift, then out of the overflow of thankful and grateful hearts, praise will flow. As we lift our hearts, minds, and voices in praise to the Lord, our perspective changes. Our faith is encouraged and strengthened to the possibilities in God. When we make a sacrifice of praise, choosing to thank God regardless of how we are feeling now, we are lifted up. As we praise God, as we bless Him with our thanksgiving, God pours out His blessing on us.

Tony Evans puts it this way in his commentary: “Let the whole earth shout triumphantly to God! In the Bible, worship is not some sedate event. People are to engage in it with a sense of excitement. You can’t worship the Lord without your emotions. It is no mere intellectual exercise. Moreover, worship is for “the whole earth.” All peoples are invited to join the celebration. No one is left out. Worship is all that we are responding to all that he is. It is the recognition of God for who he is, what he has done, and what we are trusting him to do.”

The joy of Christians is not based solely on changing emotions or on comfortable circumstances. While positive emotions and positive life happenings are wonderful blessings from God, they are not the basis of joy. Rather, God’s character and promises are unchanging and certain, a source of hope in the midst of the hardships of life.

We are enjoined to serve and worship our God with joy and gladness of heart. Since He is a gracious, good, and faithful God, we should serve Him with joy and gladness and not grudgingly (2 Cor. 9:7; Ps. 104:34; 122:1).

Joy is a Fruit of the Spirit. As you surrender completely to the Holy Spirit, the natural result will be Joy and rejoicing in the Lord. If you are full of God, you will be full of joy. There is healing and health in rejoicing. The scripture says, A glad heart is a good medicine…” Proverbs 15:13 and 17:22. I pray for grace to worship and serve God with shout of joy, singing, dancing, and gladness in our heart in Jesus name.
