Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;

Do you treat God’s Word as something extraordinary? Do you treat it as special?

Isn’t God’s word simply the truth as given to us by God through many people over thousands of years of our history?

Why don’t we treat it as being totally natural and fully expected – as if it was the whole truth!

Hebrews 7:22 Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.

God made a promise to us all through Christ to always be there for us! This is a promise!

Because of this promise, Christ is our guarantor for a better deal for us all; not just something He said, but a guarantor!

Jesus demonstrated that guarantee by giving His own life on the cross for our sin debt. We are free, yes free indeed!

Psalm 126:1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed.

Don’t forget to look back on the history we know from our bibles. Don’t forget to see how much God has done for people!

It is easy to focus on the bad things and only remember those – because that way when things get tough we feel like we are not the only ones...

But if we remember the good times as well, then we can remember the promise which God has kept and served up for many before us!

Psalm 126:2 Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.

What do you think about when you talk about the Joy of Christ? Do you think of the happiest time on earth you can have?

This is a simple view of what Joy can mean – when your life is filled with laughter and all you can talk about is the great time you are having!

God is not going to fill out lives with earthly wealth and possessions if He knows they will corrupt our hearts!

God want us to enjoy real joy, which goes beyond our simple understanding and fills our lives with something new!
