“ENJOY HIM AND BE HAPPY”

Enjoy Him and be happy. Dear God created you to be pleasing to Him, so enjoy all the blessings that He has already given you and look forward to more good in your life. Let’s go to:

Psalms 150:1 “Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.”

Here praise (Strong’s 1984) is to boast, rave, or celebrate, sanctuary (Strong’s 6944) is a sacred peace, holiness or hallowed, firmament (Strong’s 7554) is expansion, spread abroad or stretch, power (Strong’s 5810) to prevail or strength. So trust Him always to take you to a better place and share that wealth of His Love by shining His light that is in you onto those around you and let His Love prevail. Let’s go on to:

Psalms 150:2 “Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.”

Here mighty (Strong’s 1369) forceful, victorious, mighty or strong, acts (Strong’s 5953) to effect or work wonderfully, excellent (Strong’s 7231) increase or multiply and greatness (Strong’s 1431) is largeness, great, magnify or nourish. Let Him know how much you care and how glad you are there He is doing a work in your life with all the wonderful miracles and blessings He already has done.

Stay close to Home and let Him know how you feel about change in your life and the things He is changing and shaping you into. He is refining you to be that better person who is closer to Him and what a beautiful work you are and are becoming. Thank Him for that and for keeping you grounded in Him and staying in the Word. By keeping close to Him, you are making the change easier and your life is so much better.

Finally, enjoy Him an be happy today. You do not need to wait to everything is perfect in your life because it will never be. Just appreciate everything He has blessed you with right now and go from there. Things can only get better, right! He loves you so let Him know you love Him, too. He is so proud to have you with Him.

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Truth,

Mindy
at your service

I agree, sometimes we get so wrapped up in serving God, we forget to enjoy His presence!

The nearer we draw to Him, the more abundant and apparent His blessings! :) Makes me happy!
