Make A Shout
Psalm 66:1-4 says…Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! 2 Sing out the honor of His name; Make His praise glorious. 3 Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You. 4 All the earth shall worship You And sing praises to You; They shall sing praises to Your name.”
I am a person that doesn’t cope too well hanging around or listening to negative people for too long. How about you? I even tend to avoid watching the news on TV now and only visit Facebook irregularly - they have become so negative. I do keep up with the bigger issues happening around the world as we need to understand and discern the times we live in but I have become increasingly impatient and frustrated at the lack of positive news and/or discussion.
With that in mind, I have been reading through the Psalms of late and the first few verses of chapter 66 stood out to me. I trust they speak to your heart today too.
God is calling each one of us to make a joyful shout to Him, to sing out honor and praise to His Name. It is hard to do that when we are being negative or surrounding ourselves with negative people. I want to hear some positive stories. I want to hear people speak again of how awesome God is and of His wonderful works. Don’t you?
Be encouraged today. Let’s make an intentional decision to speak and act positively. I look forward to hearing stories of the positive impact you have had on those around you – just because you are positive and bringing glory to His Name.
