Worship – Despair Into Joy

“You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.”Psalm 30:11-12
Here is another great verse to contemplate before bringing worship to our God. God turns our despair into joy, and this should be so moving that we cannot keep silent.
Do we have this feeling when we worship? Does our worry turn to joy when we pause for a few minutes each week to sing and bring praise to the Lord? If we do not, I think it best to bring this matter before a brother or sister in Christ and confess it. What might be hindering you from experiencing the joy that David describes in this psalm? God wants us to to have this passion in our worship, and to be free of the weight of sin. This requires a deeper understanding of His grace and forgiveness. And, like David, we can begin preparing to give thanks to the Lord…..forever.
