Today is one day I’m beginning with raising a hallelujah. The words from the Bethel praise song are filling my soul:
I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for meI’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!….

This is the day that the Lord hath made and I will rejoice and be glad in it1 Are things perfect, No! Is all right with the world, No! We can’t wait until perfection comes to recognize that in Him:
He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness]. 2Corinthians 5:21 (AMP)
What a promise! We don’t have to wait for some day when all is right, we are even now “the righteousness of God…placed in a right relationship with Him” -can’t it get any better than that to rub shoulders with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Have a great and glorious day!
