Afraid of too much rejoicing in God’s grace?


Along with the Song of Moses we read today in  in Exodus 15, we read this encouragement from David in Psalm 28 today, encouragement to EXULT, to “rejoice greatly” (KJV). Is there such a thing as TOO much rejoicing?

Blessed be the Lord!
For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him. (ESV)

(Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. KJV)

Here are some words from C. H Spurgeon found at The Treasury of David”

Observe the adverb “greatly, “we need not be afraid of being too full of rejoicing at the remembrance of grace received.

We serve a great God, let us greatly rejoice in him. A song is the soul’s fittest method of giving vent to its happiness, it were well if we were more like the singing lark, and less like the croaking raven.

When the heart is glowing, the lips should not be silent. When God blesses us, we should bless him with all our heart.
