Psalm 5:11-12 MSG

Psalm 5:11-12 MSG

But you’ll welcome us with open arms
    when we run for cover to you.
Let the party last all night!
    Stand guard over our celebration.
You are famous, God, for welcoming God-seekers,
    for decking us out in delight.

God is good and He is worthy to be praised. We can dance and party in church knowing that God is alive and lives in us. I think sometime’s Christians can get caught up in what counts as ‘acceptable’ worship music. I think there is a time to reflect in quieter songs, a time to have your heart and pain be healed in a slower ballad, and a time to jump around because we are free. We are allowed to be excited that God is alive and rescued us. Our worship is allowed to reflect different seasons and experiences in life: happiness, grief, confusion, etc. All of these feelings can be handled by God. And all of these feelings can cause us to remember different aspects of God’s goodness.

No matter what God is alive. and we’re allowed to be excited about what Jesus did for us on the cross and what He will continue to do.
