S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
An edict came from the most powerful man in all of Israel, King David. Start REJOICING and get GLAD if you call yourself a RIGHTEOUS person. If your heart is clean and pure before the Lord … “Just Get Glad!”
My Father-in-Law used to say that our biggest enemy in life is GRAVITY! Of course as a young man I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about. But through the years I believe I’ve seen aging people actually get shorter! Their shoulders begin to slump and getting out of a chair becomes an almost impossible “PUSH.” Not only are there physical changes that come with age in our war with Gravity, but there’s also the potential for ATTITUDES to change as well. Where there once was Joy and a “Can-Do” spirit, it can easily change to … “It’s ALL Bad Now!” And then Complaining and more Complaining and it’s really Bad. I think you’re catching my drift. But here’s the truth … We can actually FIGHT Gravity. We can choose to get out of the chair and exercise until it gets easier to get up. And we can CHOOSE to be UP in our attitude. We can smile. We can have a good word for those we come in contact with. Because at the end of the day, it’s ALL a CHOICE. The KING knew that. That’s why he said … “Just Be Glad!”
I’m going to jump to my feet right now from my position of prayer today … And … “Just Be Glad!” Amen
