I read in Psalm 126: “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”
I love thinking back on the “great things” the Lord has accomplished in my life, in the lives of others, and throughout the whole history of Israel to this very day. I think of the “great thing” of salvation and righteousness extended to us. I think of the the “great thing” of God’s presence and how He “gives the Spirit without limit” (John 3).
How could we not know joy? I’m so thankful for joy!
