An Encouraging Word
This month, especially as we kick off the New Year, we will Praise God for everything – good and bad! Psalm 8 begins and ends with the statement, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Note the exclamation point, which is used to punctuate the sentence both times. The punctuation makes all of the difference in how we should express this thought. The exclamation means to suddenly “cry out” or exclaim the statement “vehemently” according to Webster’s New World Dictionary. So, hit the pause button this day and at this moment exclaim to yourself and those around you the majesty of God’s name. Let this thought permeate your soul and meditate on it throughout the day.
