This is a short five verse psalm and the first four verses are a call to action: pray, serve, study God, gather to worship and so on. The exhortations, however, are not merely to do these things but to do these things a certain way—with gladness, joy and gratitude. This psalm calls us to have a right attitude in our worship to the Lord. The great motivation that fuels us to serve God with gladness is found in the last verse that says, “The Lord is good and his steadfast love endures forever”. Scott talks about the principle that the more we realize the goodness of God the more we are able to serve God with gladness. The last part of the message reveals some of the dramatic ways God has poured out his abundant goodness to us. Be encouraged!
