SHOUTS OF JOY

Read: Psalm 118

Key Verse: “Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: ‘The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!’” - Psalm 118:15

When was the last time you celebrated with a shout of joy to the Lord? Have you been too contained? The psalmist recalls the great victories the Lord has brought into his life. Triumphs can be in breaking free from sinful choices and patterns, reconciliation in a relationship, new career opportunities, closeness to God, a physical healing, or seeing God change lives.

The psalmist begins by affirming that the Lord’s love endures forever. The Lord answered his prayer and brought an escape from the enemy. God is with the psalmist. Overcoming fears is another victory. The psalmist is so grateful to be alive. God gave him strength and joy in his heart. Can you relate to any of these?

What would it take for you to give God a shout of praise?
