“O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with Psalms”
What a sweet word of encouragement this is. Yes, our Lord is inviting us to “come before His presence with thanksgiving.”
Right now, beloved child of Abba Father, give thanks to God for His indwelling presence abiding within you, as promised, in Father, Son and Spirit (John 14:16&23).
“Come before His presence,” which is to consciously draw near to God’s presence, “with thanksgiving.” Entering God’s presence is most beautifully accomplished when a spirit of thanksgiving is present and expressed.
Let us be present in God’s presence.
“Let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.” Yes, We praise you Lord Jesus, for allowing us to be born again, so we would know You and praise You as the Rock of our salvation! We are joyful in Your presence, grateful in Your presence, even as You fill us anew with Your presence.
Yes, dearly beloved child of God, “come before His presence with thanksgiving” as consistently as you can, as often as you like, and you will find this helps you greatly in always being blessedly aware of your Lord’s loving presence within You, offering comfort, strength, peace, joy, companionship, and all of the blessings of God freely given to you in Jesus Christ.
Enter His gates and “Shout joyfully to Him” with this psalm today. Hallelujah!
