Are we having fun yet? God is!
The Bible says that God takes great delight in us and rejoices over us with singing. (Zeph. 3).
It tells us that He enjoys listening in when we talk to each other about Him and that He is writing down our names in a special book because it gives Him pleasure to do so. (Malachi 3).
It also says He laughs at his enemies because He knows they are defeated. (Psalm 2).
And the New Testament tells us that Jesus was anointed with gladness above all of His contemporaries. (Heb. 1).
So it makes sense that God’s Word admonishes us to rejoice always. (Phil.4). And we have good reason to do so, because we have a God who loves just hanging out with us and having a good time.
So whatever else is on your list for today — stop and make a little time to hang out with the Lord of the universe. He’s waiting to enjoy some time with you.
Today is my birthday, and I want to take this opportunity to say I hope all of you, my dear readers, have as happy a day as I will be having.
I believe our words have power, so I would also like to decree that this day, February 1,2014, is the first day of the most magnificent year of my life!
