“…May all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in You. May those who love Your salvation repeatedly shout, “The Lord is great!” Psalm 40:16
The psalmist’s focus in this portion of his song is the blessing for all who seek the Lord for life. His hope is everyone who seeks the Lord would be filled with joy and gladness. Most certainly if there is any hope to know genuine joy and gladness, and there is, it comes in seeking the Lord.
God Himself has promised we will find Him if we search for Him with all our hearts.The sincere seeker of God has a definitive hope and promise to experience true joy and gladness. When a heart is in pursuit and abandoned to Christ, full of the joy and gladness of His presence, it is instinctive to shout, “Great is the Lord!” for he is great and there is none greater.
My heart is full of gratitude and praise for you this morning my Lord and my king as I think of your most amazing love and grace. You are my source of joy and gladness, great are you Lord, yes, great are you Lord! Amen.
