Psalm 4:7

 
You have put gladness in my heart, more than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
Psalm 4:7

Have you ever found yourself downcast, wondering why the "good times" seem to be out of reach? Blessings are for other people, but not for you. In this season, our attention can so easily be focused on that which we lack.

Others appear to be enjoying the joyful harvest in their lives. They have prosperity, I don't. They have faithful friends, I don't. We forget that we have the Creator of the Universe by our side, who beckons us to look to Him for our joy.

Once we realize, like David has in this verse, that it’s the Lord who puts gladness in our hearts, with more strength than any external pleasure can offer, we will know that God is the true source of unshakeable joy.

No matter the circumstances that you may face today, know that God is with you, for you, and loves you. He will put gladness in your heart today if you turn your attention toward Him.
