Shout for Joy
In these verses, it says that Christians can shout for joy because God defends them. What a wonderful thing to remember that God is always on your side. In Romans 8:31, Paul says, "If God be for us, who can be against us?" Sometimes you may feel like the devil is picking on you, or it may seem that everyone is picking on you; however, you must always remember that God is on your side, and the heavenly host is surrounding you and protecting you. You can rejoice today and shout for joy because of God. The devil's time to pick on you is temporal, and remember, he can't do anything without God knowing and letting him. God only lets him because He wants to do greater things in your life and bless you more when you are faithful. Don't be afraid for others to see you shouting, "Praise the Lord!" because of what God has done in your life. Use the opportunity to share with others how good and wonderful your God is.
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
Psalm 5:11-12 (KJV)
