Scripture:   Psalm (NIV) 100:1  Shout for joy to the LORD all the earth.

2  Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.

3.  Know that the LORD is God.  It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 

Observation:   Joy and gladness, shouts and songs are proper expressions in God’s presence.   In the above verse, I am told that gladness is to be a part of my worship.     

Application:  My circumstances may not be the source of my shouts and songs, of my joy and gladness.  But I know who created me.  I am His.  I am a sheep in His pasture.  I have much reason for joy.  True joy in my heart will find some outward expression. 

Prayer:   Lord, when circumstances would make me hopeless, unhappy, and gloomy Your presence, Oh God, causes me to shout and sing and worship with joy and gladness!    Amen
