Now therefore arise, O Lord God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength; let thy priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness.
If the question was raised, Why must the saints of God rejoice? The saints of God can rejoice in His goodness because He is the creator and sustainer of all that exists and the essence of human life from the beginning to the end. God is the provider of our salvation through one's faith in Jesus Christ. It is God who wakes us every morning when we rise and keeps us safe as we slumber and sleep during the night. It is God who provides for all man's needs both spiritual and physical. When trouble rises in one's life God is there with His out stretched arm to deliver us. All who believe in God's Son Jesus Christ have the indwelling Holy Spirit to lead, guide and teach His people in all godliness. We must rejoice in the goodness of God because He has clothed all believers in His righteousness through His Son's atoning work on Calvary. Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice in God's goodness.
O what a time of rejoicing there will be when all God's children get to heaven as there will be one continuous praise and worship. It was God's guiding hand of love that saints have overcome and now will spend eternity with God.
Rejoice and shout for joy as saints have victory.
