Psalm 21:1 NKJV — To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The king shall have joy in Your strength, O LORD; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV — Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for these truths! That we can have joy in Your strength and strength through Your joy. Lord, You alone, are worthy of all honor, all glory, all praise. You have created us, then saved us, and still You are sustaining us. It’s incredible! Your wonderous works are so awesome. You have turned that which the enemy meant for evil into the very gift of salvation! You have reached across time and touched people. Your mercy is astounding and Your grace is amazing. My finite mind cannot begin to grasp the greatness of You. You are Holy, Loving, Sovereign, Good, and Just. You are perfect, there is no flaw, no error, nothing. Lord, when I look at the Word and begin to calculate all You have done, then add in all You are doing, I’m so thankful. “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.” Truly, how great are You, Lord! Amen.
