Psalm 122:1: I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
Meditation: Psalms 120-134 are called Songs of degrees or Songs of Ascents. It is generally agreed upon that these Psalms were sung by pilgrims on the ascending march from the Babylonian captivity to Jerusalem. The Hebrew word for glad conveys that of a joyful or cheerful countenance, perhaps even the making of merry voices and leaping for joy! Wow! Do you get that excited when Sunday rolls around and you have the opportunity to worship in the house of God? Let us rejoice with praise and thanksgiving, with BIG smiles on our faces and a spring in our step as we congregate this Lord’s Day to worship our God and King, our Savior!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, may we as your people never think it arduous to get up on a Sunday morning to gather together for worship and fellowship. May we always be filled with joy because we have been allowed to spend time with the One who gave His life for us! Amen!
