Joy

Psalm 19 especially v8

I have written in the past how we see God in everything. Some have misunderstood my meaning but I stand firm on my previous statements. God is seen everywhere. This Psalm beautifully explains why that is so.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, the words to the ends of the world.” v1-4 NIV.

We know God is there because all of creation declares His Glory. All of creation proclaims the work of His hands. This is a universal language that all humankind can understand. We see God in all creation because all creation proclaims He is God and He exists.
God reveals His truth to us through creation. We see His universal laws of love for Him and for our fellow man. Of love for justice and care for the widow, the poor and foreigner in our midst. We know what God requires of us and we can choose to obey.
Choose to obey. That is the problem. We are not perfect so that choice is not always easy to make. Sometimes our survival brains take over and we do not make perfect decisions. God forgives us heals us because we are sorry for the wrongs we do. Then there are the deliberate choices to make imperfect decisions. God forgives us for them too, when we are sorry. And when we are not sorry, He guides us to that point of being able to acknowledge and apologise our imperfect decisions.
So between the glory of God visible everywhere around us and the forgiveness so freely given to us through Jesus Christ, we have great cause for Joy.

Remember when something brings even momentary Joy that sometimes Joy is only fleeting. It is sometimes as brief as a kiss. It is a reminder of how much God loves us.
