"...let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your Name may exult in You."

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭5:11‬

Christians have always been known for singing. Somehow when we flee for refuge to Jesus and discover how He receives us with forgiveness and love we want to sing.

Then we discover that He not only forgives us but makes us a part of His chosen, beloved people. He extends His protection over us the way a loving father would extend his protection over a new child who has just joined the family by birth or by adoption. Then we feel like leaping for joy.

That archaic-sounding word “exult” means “to be extremely joyful; to leap for joy.” We exult in the Lord as we get to know Him and see how He treats us, like a child who suddenly realizes how secure he is in his father’s love.

Thank You, Father, for receiving, forgiving, and adopting me. Thank You for Your loving correction and discipline. Thank You for extending Your protection over me and making me truly Your own child. I worship You, Lord. Amen.

Pastor Dan Giles
