Psalm 100:1-5 (KJV)
1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Shout for Joy! Start your morning with thanksgiving and gladness in the presence of the Lord. Start your day knowing that the Lord has made you and knows everything about you.

Psalm 63:1-2 (KJV)
1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary
.

Psalm 63:6-8 (NLT)
6 I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.
7 Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.

A psalm written during a time that David was hiding in the wilderness of Judah from King Saul. At that time, he wrote psalms to comfort his soul. He had a relationship with the Lord that termed him to be a man after the heart of the Lord. He knew that his refuge was in the Lord. As a young lad he always had a longing to know the Lord. When he was running for his life the same desire followed him. He hungered and thirsted to be in the presence of the Lord to observe the glory and power of the Lord. He had been privileged to see such a wonder in a sacred, hallowed place. He had seen God’s power when he wrestled with a bear and a lion. David saw the glory of God as it guided the stone that struck Goliath down to the ground and won a victory over the Philistines. It is no wonder why he cries out to God as he is travelling in the deserts needing assistance. As he lay looking up into the stars of the desert night because he could not sleep. His thoughts were meditating upon the Lord. Meditating how the Lord was his helper and that he could still rejoice while he found refuge under the shadow of the Almighty. He knew the Lord would reach out and keep him secure. He never doubted the validity of God and made it a practice to seek the Lord early in the morning creating a sanctuary to be in contact with his God. He was clinging to the only one he knew that gave him hope in such a trying time. Such a beautiful relationship to live daily trusting in the blessings of hope and security. Receive your blessings today trusting in the only One who can fill your life with hope.

Mark 4:37-41 (KJV)
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
