Have Joy In Your Maker
Psalms 149:2: Let Israel have joy in his maker; let the children of Zion be glad in their King.
There is joy that all men should have in Their Maker, but there is a far greater joy for the men whom He has recreated. A man who has not been recreated can only have something less than God*s full joy. There is also far fuller gladness for those in whose lives He reigns as King.
Acts 2:28: Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
1 Peter 1:8: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
If you are don*t experience that joy and gladness, you may not have been born again, or you are not permitting Him to reign in your life.
