“The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” (Psalm 126:3)
The promise for today is from Psalm 126:3 were we read, “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” As soon as I read this verse the first thing that came to my mind was the birth of my dear daughter Katie. It was such a joy when she was born into our lives. Actually the due date was further away but the Lord surprised us by bringing her into our lives sooner than expected. We were filled with so much joy because of this great thing the Lord had done in our life.
Though there were injections going on in each of my hand I couldn’t feel any pain as the Lord filled me with His joy. Yes in the same way the Lord is going to do wonderful and marvellous things in your life today and you are going to experience the joy of the Lord. The Bible says in Psalm 45:7, “You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” The Lord is going to anoint you with the oil of joy. When you are anointed with joy it will overflow and people around you will experience the joy of the Lord through you. You will be set apart from your companions.
Believe in this promise and thank the Lord in advance because the Lord is going to do wonderful things in your life from now. The Bible is filled with stories that display the wonders of God. One such story is that of Esther’s. She was just a simple girl but the Lord caused everything to fall in place for her to rise up as queen. God is going to do such great things in your life today. Are you going through shame? Be patient. God is going to bring you honour you have never imagined. Just as God lifted Mordecai’s head and Esther’s head He will lift your head too. The circumstances that threatened their life were turned into their benefit and God caused all things to end well. God will do the same for you. Expect great things from God and attempt great thing for God in the words of William Carey. You will receive joy in abundant measure.
Thank You for this wonderful promise verse You have given this day. Thank You for the great things You have done so far and thank You for You are going to do great things in the future. Fill me with Your joy. Lift my head and honour me. Let Your name be glorified through the great things You do for me.
In Your Name I pray, Amen.
