{ Day 226 }

Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone—while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? —Job 38:4-7

Job said that when God was creating the world, the angels, "the sons of God" (NKJV), were filled with happiness as they sang. They were over-the-top exhilarated. God even created angels with a capacity for happiness—a phenomenal reality! I see Jesus smiling and asking, "Well, Father, what kind of servants should We create for My bride?" The Father replies, "Happy servants." So God placed the capacity for happiness in their very design. In Luke 2, these very angels appeared in the heavens to tell people that God had supplied a remedy—a Savior—to bring us back into fellowship with Him. The choirs of heaven and the angels appeared and were almost unable to contain their glee. They sang it loud and long, "Hosanna! Glory to God in the highest!" They trumpeted the good news that God was removing the barriers so people could come into one-heart fellowship with Him. This wasn't a one-time celebration but a lifestyle of heaven being revealed for a moment to citizens of Earth.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

How I would have loved to have heard the angel choir singing, "Hosanna! Glory to God in the highest!" on the night of Your Son's birth. And someday I shall join with the angelic host as we celebrate eternity with You.

In my imagination I can see the Father looking at
the Son with a big grin as they planned Creation.
