What Makes You Glad?
Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It gives secrets, and the Holy Spirit then takes it and tells you what it really means, and what you can do to walk in it. Psalms 92:4 - For you make me glad by your deeds O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands. Are you glad? Why not? You’re not glad because you are not remembering His Deeds. If He makes you glad by His deeds, and you are not glad… You are not thinking of what He did, you’re just thinking of something less than ideal that happened, or might happen to you. You are not focused on His deeds, you’re focused on your fears, or your situation. If you want to be glad, you get glad by His Deeds. He makes you glad by His deeds. If you want to get glad. Then sing for joy at the works of His hands. You have to be focused on His deeds, and His works if you are going to be glad. If your joy is to remain, you must focus on Him, His Word, His Deeds, His Works. And if you are not fully obeying in this moment, in this day that the LORD has made to bring forth His deeds, then you won’t see them. You have to obey what He tells you, what He’s planned for you today - to see the deeds He wants to do. So He can make you glad with them. You aren’t just limited to His former deeds, He has new deeds waiting. Waiting for you to trust and obey. Just waiting for you to follow and see, so you can be glad and rejoice again in the new ones – as well as the old. He is the One who makes you glad! You don’t make you glad, your spouse isn’t the one who makes you glad – that’s not their job… or your family or your friends, certainly not money, or things… He makes you glad. “For you make me glad by your deeds O LORD.” He doesn’t just love you – He does something. He shows it, He proves it again and again, day by day, even though what He has done has already proved it forever. He’ll do it again today, He just needs you to obey. God has more deeds that He wants to unfold for you to see. And He’s just waiting on you to obey so you can sing for joy at the works of His hands. Just start with what He has done. Sing about them. Verse 5 “How great are your works, O LORD, how profound your thoughts!” Even what God thinks about you is worth singing about, and praising Him for. His thoughts towards you are good, they are countless. Psalms 138:17 - "How precious are your thoughts about me O God, how vast is the sum of them!" Psalms 40:5 – “Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.” The thoughts you think toward me O LORD, are good, full of love and compassion, You give everything we need, our rest and our hope, and our peace, and our joy is in you. You make me glad by your deeds. You always draw me close, you always give me your word, the word for today, the word of this moment, your word of love and truth, and assignment – so you can do the next deeds that will make me glad, as I sing for joy at the work of your hands! Praying that you will be glad today. Why not? His deeds are enough to make you glad, what He’s done and what He’s planned, His thoughts towards you are good. He makes you glad by His deeds. Praying that you’ll obey today – so God can do everything He wants to do… to make you glad. Praying that you will sing for joy about it. You don’t have to feel joy right now to sing for joy, you start, He’ll finish. Just sing for joy at the works of His hands, the more you sing the more you’ll remember, and the more your joy will come. He makes you glad by His deeds. Your job is to sing for joy about it. And obey today, so He can do it again.
Love you all,
