Laughter, Joy, and Amazament

May 27th, 2017 · No Comments

Psalms 126:2 (New Living Translation)

We were filled with laughter,
and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
“What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”

Jehovah, the God of the Hebrews, had once again blessed them. They were filled with laughter and joy. They couldn’t contain themselves.

And the nations about them noticed all this. The nations couldn’t help but notice all this.

I believe this happens to this day. The LORD blesses, people laugh with joy, and others notice. Sometimes us life-long Christians take assume this is just the way it is for everyone all the time. Well, it isn’t. The joy of blessings from God are not with everyone, everywhere, all the time. Let us all, always, in every situation recognize the blessings and give thanks.
