The Joy of Salvation

Restore unto me the joy of salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 
(Psalm 51:12) 

     Getting saved is a joyous and unforgettable moment for everyone and nothing compares to it. It inspires us, motivates us, teaches us to live, and we are awakened, we step into a different realm, we view the world differently now because we have witnessed the great architect at work within our lives; we have witnessed the overwhelming and ineffable love and compassion from a God who will miraculously turn everything in our favour now we have chosen to make Him a priority. Our eyes have been opened, and their is now no doubt in our minds that their is an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent God manipulating our realities to suit every need. 

     But, unfortunately, we all make mistakes, and it does not always last; nothing compares to that heavenly moment when we got saved and we desperately endeavour to re-enter it. How do we do it? What is the answer? What can we do to become enlightened children of God once more? I would often ask myself this: how do we get back in the moment? How do we receive all of His favour? 

     King David knew the joy of salvation probably more than anyone else at the time. He would worship the LORD and sing and dance and never stopped loving Him. David was a musician; he played the harp, which pleased King Saul very much - until he sought to hunt down David for receiving God's favour. The point here being though, that David knew the importance of praise and worship.

And David danced before the LORD with all his might. 
(2 Samuel 6:14)

     Whenever I attend church and we begin with praise and worship, it is apparent to everyone that the musicians on stage are very much in the spirit; they love the Divine Father intensely and it shows; they are overcome with His grace and glory and favour because they know the importance of praise and worship. Nothing compares to it, and God has clearly chosen them to do great things. This is how we receive that joy of salvation once more, with praise and worship. Learn to play, learn to sing, learn to dance like David before the LORD in his holy sanctuary. God bless.
