His Thoughts of YouJune 30, 2015
“I will rejoice in Your salvation” (Psalm 9:14). The word “rejoice” here means to jump for joy. Have you seen kids get so excited they just jump around all over the place? That’s the excitement David had about thinking of the Lord’s salvation. The word speaks of an emotional response basically of the righteous.
If David could rejoice when God never came out of the Holy of Holies, and was never seen, no wonder Paul could rejoice when God sent His Son to earth to walk among men. I’m sure he often reminded believers to rejoice, as he did to the Philippians.
“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4).
We are a part of the good news gospel. We ought to rejoice more than any of the Old Testament saints. We have a sure salvation through the finished work of Jesus. When we meet to worship in our local churches it’s a time of rejoicing. It’s now, not when we all get to Heaven. The word “rejoice” is always pegged in the ground for which we rejoice. Rejoice in your salvation.
