Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
As Believers and “Followers” of our wonderful Lord and Savior, we need to CHOOSE JOY, contend for it, and, turn our “shout” on! We need to flip the switch of our JOYFUL shout from off to on! “Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.” (Psalm 100:1). Why?
Wouldn’t you agree that there’s just too many people yelling at each other. Whether it’s on the road driving, or just watching all that’s happening around the world. They yell angrily; frustratingly; disgusting words of displeasure, protest, harassment, and harm at each other.
Sometimes, people get so used to yelling at whoever, that people yell “at” God, instead of shout “to” the Lord. What’s the difference? Well, simply put - The Answer: Heart. When a person yells “at”, it’s coming from a heart that is usually unhappy, unsatisfied, and “against” something. When a person shouts “to”, it’s coming from a heart that is happy, satisfied, and “for” something.
Let’s be a people that refuses to yell at each other, but instead chooses to “shout joyfully TO the Lord”. When we do the latter, it honors God, and puts a smile on His face! It also reflects a heart of “Thankfulness “ and Praise & Worship” to our God! The amazing thing is that a when we shout joyfully to the Lord – it gets His attention in a good way!
Start PRAYING for all 32+ YOUTHS and Youth Leaders that’s going to CAMP in a few weeks! I’m praying that each one of them encounter Jesus in such a powerful way that equips, empowers and transforms their lives! Let our all of them be used mightily to minister to others in ways they never dreamed! Amen!
