Life Application Truth-Joy Peace and Praise

January 19th, 2012

JOHN SHIRK-Psalm 16, verses 7 to 9-“I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.”

David wrote this Psalm.  As a man after God’s own heart, it was his practice to lift up the name of the LORD and seek His counsel.  God was his source of joy.  God was his source of peace. God was the source of his praise.

In a similar way, God can be our source of joy, peace, and praise as our faith remains focused on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.  His example of unwavering love will encourage our hearts to press on in the faith, with the confidence that we can fully trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Joy, peace, and praise are vital signs of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
