Daily Fountain 2017 - Rejoice In The Lord All His Own

Sunday March 12

Bible Reading:     Psalms 33: 1 - 22

Topic:         Rejoice In The Lord All His Own

This Psalm is a hymn of praise probably written to celebrate the Power, Wisdom and Mercy of God .

It gives abundant reasons why God's People should rejoice in the Lord.

The source of the believers' joy is not in the world neither is it in themselves, but in the Lord.

New songs are put in their mouths because they too are new creatures. It is only the born again that can truly rejoice in the Lord in this world of uncertainty.

Reasons abound why believers should rejoice in the Lord.
His Word, because it is right (v. 4)
His Works because they are done in truth and in loving kindness (vs. 4, 5)
His Power (vs. 8, 9) because He is able to perform what He had promised
And His Counsel does not fail and finally we are able to rejoice in and praise Him because we are blessed.

He has chosen us for His Inheritance (v. 12) All spiritual blessings are ours because we belong to Him.

Therefore we should rejoice no matter the circumstances in which we find ourselves, reminding ourselves that "all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His Purpose." (Rom. 8: 28)

Father, thank You for being my Lord because I know that I am blessed beyond words, Amen.

Memory verse:   Psalms 33: 20
"Our soul waiteth for the Lord, He is our Help and our Shield"
