Today’s word for March 30, 2011


Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
Psalms 149:5

There is nothing that fills our lives with more joy than to know that God is on our side, or rather, to know that we are on God’s side. The mere consideration of the attributes of God and the wonders he has achieved by his powerful hand is reason enough to rejoice and feel the need to release our emotions through praise. God is always acting for our benefit, but most of the time we don’t even notice because our attention is focused on the things of the world and not on the glory of God. Sometimes, we even complain to God that it seems that He has forgotten us when in fact, it is we who have forgotten Him. This is the typical attitude of a spoiled child whose egocentrism is nourished and strengthened by clumsy parents who do not realize that by bringing him up in such a way may only bring regrets later.

The life of a child of God should be a life of constant growth and learning, whose goal is spiritual maturity. This maturity is only achieved through submission to the learning plan that God has established for each of us according to our personality traits. Not everyone learns the same way but everyone can learn. This also applies to the children of God. Our goal is maturity and this can only be achieved by paying attention to the Master in the classroom of life. Let us prepare ourselves, then, with joy to live in the world of considering the work of God and rejoicing in the praise of His name. Thus, the joy will spring from our pores in a supernatural way and will never run out. To God alone be the glory!
