Clap your Hands and Shout to God with Cries of Joy

Clap your Hands and Shout to God with Cries of Joy

The writer of Psalm 47 has captured the notion of gratitude!  When I stand still, knowing that God is in control of my life, I see the evidences of God’s action on my behalf.  I cry out, “Hallelujah.”

O how I long to live into the joy that is mine in Christ Jesus.  I want to live graciously, experiencing the “peace that passes understanding.”

Deep peace begins when I stand still and see the salvific gifts given each day.

When I look across my life and see the mighty hand of the Lord, taking note of all that has been done for me, I cannot contain myself.  Indeed, I must clap my hands and shout to God with cries of joy!
