I have something to shout about. I have family and friends that want the best for me. They really do.
They have my best interests at heart. They absolutely love me.
- I should listen to those who want the best for me last.
- They should always have the last word.
- What they say is worthy of a glad shout.
Shout it out I say! Hallelujah!
Let those who delight in my righteousness shout for joy and be glad and say evermore, “Great is Yahweh [the Lord], who delights in the welfare of his servant!” Then my tongue shall tell of your righteousness and of your praise all the day long.
English Standard Version (Ps 35:27–28). (2016). Crossway Bibles.
What about my enemies? There are plenty of naysayers who only want to trip me up. As David says in verse 19: “Do not let these liars, my enemies, have a party at my expense, those who hate me for no reason, winking and rolling their eyes. No good is going to come from that crowd.”
Here is the good news. God is great. Nothing is impossible with God. God is God. His power and might is unlimited. There are no boundaries with God. None. Now that is amazing. God has made His Son Jesus King of His country. Jesus wants to do mighty things in my life.
God is so great that everything works together for good for me. Really it does. I need to see Jesus and what He is doing and not my enemies that want to have a party at my expense.
What should be my reaction to this news? I should tell everyone how good God is. I need to shout it out. I should tell everyone every day.
So, like the Apostle Paul, we know this:
“We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.”
