Clapping to the Lord

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: A lot of children learn to clap and cheer before they even know how to talk.

(Child clapping)

Nancy: There’s something inside them that needs to be expressed. You can see it when a child claps with glee as she steps into the waves lapping a beach or opens a brightly colored Christmas present.

That spontaneous, joyful response is the idea behind Psalm 47:1: “Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!”

The biblical concept of clapping to the Lord includes more than keeping time to music. When God’s children step into the river of His delights or discover the gifts of His grace, we want to respond in joy.

(Child clapping)

Spend some time today thinking about the wonder of God’s character and His love. Then respond to His greatness. You may want to literally clap your hands. But most importantly, respond in your heart with joy and wonder.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
