Psalm 45:7

You love justice and hate evil.

Therefore God, your God, has anointed you,

pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.


This reminds us of the source of gladness! It's not simply being giddy.

It's not a positive mindset mindset reminding ourselves to be happy. 

Rather, it is a God-given "anointing." He himself will place a special dispensation of deep, lasting gladness upon those who love righteousness and hate evil. 


I must love righteousness, for it produces an abiding confidence and a satisfaction in my soul. Gladness comes from not only doing what is right but also from loving to do it. It's an anointing of gladness, not merely a sporadic happiness.


Father, this is something I'd very much like to experience! Please anoint me with gladness. I will be one who loves righteousness and hates evil. Help me to remain teachable and submitted to those You have placed in my life to coach, guide, and direct me.
