Good morning.

David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God."

The reason for His response is because he knows God as El Sim Chat Gili. God your exceeding joy.

Joy is that deep down satisfaction that comes when what we know is true of God—He is infinitely loving, He is always good, He is unceasingly forgiving—lines up with our experience of God. Joy is not dependent on our circumstances because it is found in the presence of God. We can have joy in our difficulties because we have the expectation that our good and loving Father is taking care of us, through the good and the bad times.

Today let us emulate David, "Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the lyre, O God, my God" (Psalms 43:4‭-‬5)

Have a joy-filled day.
