As I sit at my desk this morning, reading the Bible and praying , it occurs to me that I have every reason in the world to be joyful! So often, the carnal mind tries to come in and tell me I need to be concerned and worried, but I soon detect this message is not from God. Psalms 84:31 reads “The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in His works.” That verse tells me that if God is rejoicing in His work, then so should I.
The times I feel burdened is the exact time I think I can do something without God and I humbly turn to Him, laying all my burdens on the altar. As I become more grateful for this understanding, I soon see God everywhere and know He has never lost control; no matter what the carnal mind is screaming at us. Today is the Lord’s Day and I will praise Him.
