Psalm 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Psalm 51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
Have you ever noticed that some people seem to be always complaining about everything. Sadly this can be true even among Christians. A negative Christian is in need of revival. When we have the joy of salvation dominating our life we are not focused on the problems of our family, the church, or even the world on a constant basis. We realize that being negative is not a life filled with faith.
Faith and joy focus on the Goodness of God and on His ability to handle the circumstances that surround us. We might not always be able to praise the people around us. We might find a little trouble in finding anything praiseworthy about the circumstances we find our self in. When we find that we are in a situation like this it is time for us to concentrate on God. He is always worthy of our praise and our worship.
True revival will fill us with praise.
