On Our Beds Rejoicing

For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation. Let the saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds. Psalm 149:4 and 5. NIV



The Psalms are full of rejoicing. In this passage it is easy to see why. To be told that the Lord takes delight in His people is good news indeed. That He crowns the humble with salvation leaves us energized. We rejoice.

The thing that strikes us in these verses, though, is the location in which this rejoicing takes place. “In their beds,” says the psalmist. Do you have friends that lie awake at night worried or afraid? Or loved ones who are in bed struggling with an illness? Confined to bed due to old age? Right now lying in bed recovering from surgery or a stroke? On bed rest during a difficult pregnancy? Dying?

All these people come to mind when we read the words ”on their beds”, and they are not what we usually consider the rejoicing population. But, then, that is what sets this God apart from others. He delights in His people; sick, tired, recovering, not recovering; all His people.

And they delight in Him. They actually “sing for joy on their beds.”

So, the next time you can’t sleep, or are sick; whenever you find yourself in bed, for whatever reason, remember to sing for joy. After all, that’s what God’s people do.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
