Psalm 32:11 (NASB)

Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.


Unlocking the Truth - Shout for Joy

We are just and lawful in Christ. Our union with the Holy Spirit makes it so, even though on the surface we see ourselves as only human. He is the supernatural part of us that makes us holy (whether we feel holy or not).

In case we didn’t get it the first time when he calls us righteous, David addresses us a second time as upright in heart.


Some interesting Hebrew meanings of “upright” are: straight, pleased well right, pleasant, prosperous. And the Hebrew definitions of “heart” are: the heart, also used widely for the feelings, the will and even the intellect; courageous, kindly.

You see, with Christ living in us, we have the ability to be what He is—straight, pleased well, pleasant and prosperous. He died on the cross to give us His heart, and everything in it—His feelings, will and intellect; even His courage and kindness.


It may not happen at the snap of your fingers, but you can begin by faith to tap into His heart within you and access all of Him. We can be healthy emotionally, mentally and intellectually.

Just discovering the truth in this single Bible verse is enough to make you shout for joy! Go on, give it a try! You can be joyful. 

We have the Son of the Living God living inside of us. Hallelujah! 

Study the Bible verse of Psalm 32:11, and discover the joy within you today.
