Psalm 40:16 – But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!”

Observation- The psalm points to Christ’s sacrifice for us and his prayer to the Father. All who seek the Lord are called to rejoice and be glad that we are in Him through his loving sacrifice for us. Our love is not subsiding and we should tell others with exclamation of His greatness!

Application- I must always remember daily, never get over the gospel that Jesus has met my greatest need. First, I have to actively seek the Lord. Walking with the Lord requires action on my part to be in prayer, be in His word, to follow Him. This is how I will  know Him, be closer to Him and trust in Him more. This relationship is cause to be joyous not burdensome like the law. I must love God, love others and everything I do should be motivated by the love of Christ. The love of Christ is the most powerful thing in the world and the greatest news so I should continually, emphatically praise His name!

Prayer – Father,
Thank you for your love and salvation! Let me seek you and remember your love daily not forgetting to praise and honor you.
