“Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10)
And how do we get joy? By entering His presence with thanksgiving and praise.
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.” (Psalm 100:4)
And “In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11)
Wow! Thank You, Lord, for Your salvation that we do not deserve. You are so good to us. You are awesome! I praise Your glorious name forever!
