Psalm 100: verse 4

Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

It is a blessing and privilege to enter the House of the Lord. Thanksgiving and praise should always be in our hearts and on our minds as we enter his presence. Our prayers should flow from hearts full of joy and peace as we express with words the praise we have for our Triune God. Our Heavenly Father, his Son and our Savior, and the Holy Spirit were all involved in our salvation and glory, praise, and thanksgiving should be directed heavenward on a daily and hourly basis as we meditate on our status as sons of God. When we enter his gates these thoughts and feelings should be magnified and brought into a sharp focus of pure worship and love. Praise God for His salvation and His Holy Word.

"Tune my heart to sing Thy praise."

Susan said...

Amen, Jazzy.
How remiss I am in praising Him daily - for ALL He has given me - not least of which, life. And rebirth.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow...
Thank you for the reminder. It is GOOD to praise Him!

Susan said...

Ach!
That should read:
How remiss I am in not praising Him daily...

Don, Mark, Craver, and Susan,
You all encourage me greatly and I appreciate it. It seems the more I focus and meditate on the LORD, the more peace and joy I have.

Perhaps you should think of running these types of posts at bc blog. Thanksgiving, praise and worship should be in the hearts of ALL who have experieneced God's redeeming love in Christ.
