Psalm 100:1-2 “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!”
What is something you see that should be prevalent in our walk with the Lord? Joy! We should be joyful! Here the writer is saying that you should be joyful in singing! You should be joyful to serve the Lord! That you come into His presence singing! With these two verses I want to give you three challenges to try.
1. Sing during your devotional time. Thats right. I want you to spend some time alone this week and just sing to the Lord. When you are reading the Word, what song comes to mind, sing it! This is a practice that I will be honest, this is difficult for me. But as believers we should sing to the Lord. When you sing, it shows the joys of your heart.
2. Serve someone this week. How can you take time to serve someone this week? What can you do to encourage someone? These are the three questions that the Lord has laid on my heart to encourage people with, you can use them too. What is the Lord teaching you in His Word? What next step do you think He’s calling you to? How can I help you in that? These are simple questions that can encourage someone to take a huge faith step!
3. Sing at church! Yep! Sing with other believers. Even if you don’t know the song, sing! Even if it doesn’t fit your style, sing! Old or new, sing! I pray that you sing so loud this week that we wake the neighbors! Let people hear your joy in the Lord.
