The Righteous Rejoice

Psalm 68:3 But let the righteous be glad; let them exult before God; Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.

“As wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish before God” is how verse 2 ends.  David is praying that wicked would melt and disappear before a Holy God and because of that the righteous should rejoice and be glad.  The righteous do not rejoice over the death of the wicked people, but over the fact that the wicked acts will melt away.  The fact that somebody dies who does not know Jesus, is something we should mourn over.  That person will face eternal punishment in Hell.  The fact that a good God overcomes evil is something we should rejoice over!

Rejoice in your God good, oh Christian.  Rejoice in the fact that God overcomes evil and evil cannot overcome God.  Light overcomes darkness, not the other way around.  Exult in our Holy God.  He is light and everything about Him is pure and true.  Worship our great and mighty God!

Please note, if you have not accepted Jesus as your Savior, you will face eternal punishment.  It is a punishment that you and I both deserve.  Our wicked ways have earned it, but God with His wonderful grace, has provided a way to be saved from it.  Jesus came to earth, to pay the price to free us from the punishment of our sins.  Your wicked deeds can be forgiven, by the shedding of His blood on the cross.  God offers you and me forgiveness.  Call out to Jesus and ask Him to save you.  Ask Him to forgive you of your wicked ways.  Confess that you need Him and want Him to be your Savior.  God is willing to save you, are you willing to allow Him to?  Do it!

Oh Lord, I rejoice in You.  I worship You.  I adore You, Oh God.  Your ways are marvelous.  Your deeds are Holy and pure.  There is no one like You, none compare.  Lord, I rejoice in Your love and grace.  Thank You for saving me from Hell, even though I deserve it.  Thank you for Your free gift of salvation.  I pray for any who read this, who do not know You.  Please convict them and draw them near to You.  May they know the blessing of Your love and grace. Amen.
