"Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!
Praise befits the upright.
Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre ...
Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully on the strings with loud shouts.
For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness."
Even in the hard times, ALL of God's work is done in faithfulness. His Word still stands as our plumb line of righteousness and testifies of the One who has made us righteous.
And so our calling remains to shout, to sing, to praise Him with the talents He has given us! For such is only appropriate for those who have been saved by Him. Praise and thanksgiving set us apart as His children!
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good and His steadfast love endures forever!
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so ...."
So let your praise be contagious. It befits you, His beloved one.
