It’s ok to be glad.

“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad.” Psalms 126:3

I sat down to spend a moment with God this morning. My Bible was opened to Psalms 126. As I read, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad,” the words seemed to jump off the page. I know anytime that happens, God is wanting to get my attention. The Lord began to speak to me, “Haven’t I done great things for you? Then, be glad.”

Not mad. Not sad. But glad.

I smiled because I felt God giving me permission to be happy about all of the breakthrough, all of the favor and all of the blessings He’s been manifesting in my life. He was telling me, Kesha, it’s ok to be glad about the great things I’ve done for you. Only He knows how I sometimes pretend like it’s not a big deal and how I play it down. But God keeps nudging me and letting me know; it’s ok to be glad.

My sister, I’m going to say the same to you that the Lord spoke to me. Has He done great things for you? Then, be glad. Not mad. Not sad. But glad. Give yourself permission to be over the moon happy about everything God has done in your life and is doing. God has brought you through the fire and through the flood. He has rescued you and placed you on a firm foundation in Him. He has caused you not to be the same woman you once were. He has transformed your life and is making all things new for you! That’s plenty of reason to be glad, my sister!

Prayer: Father God, thank you for touching my heart and helping me see your truth. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I choose to be glad. To sing and be merry. You have brought me through the fire and the flood. You have set me in a great place, and I am glad. I rebuke the enemy that tries to come against my joy. What you have done for me is a big deal, and I rejoice over it without fear. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
