But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
-1 Peter 2:9, NIV
We have been called out of darkness and into God’s wonderful light. If you feel as though there’s nothing to celebrate in life then remember this. Remember that you belong to God. Know that He has called you into His light and that in that light, there is joy. Psalm 16:11 confirms this joy when it says You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.
When we are in the Lord’s presence, His wonderful light, we are in the midst of joy. He called us into this joy from a place of darkness and He called us so that we may know the life He has for us.
Regardless of how your day’s been, or even this past week or month, know that joy can always be found in the One who called you – the One who chose you.
Everybody lift your hands if you know that Jesus is worthy,
Open up and give Him praise let’s do it in a hurry.
If you love Him let’s glorify in the song and in the dance,
You know the Saviour lives, come on and lift up your hands.
May the Lord’s joy fill you and may you be able to celebrate Him at all times.
