REJOICE ALWAYS

REJOICE ALWAYS

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV) 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Here, we have three verses that have so much in them.  Let us take one each day for the next three days. 

Verse 16 says, “Rejoice always.” Well, I do not know about you, but if you are living on planet earth and you are still breathing, to do this verse is not always easy.  To rejoice when things are not going our way, or when things are just going badly, is difficult.  Yet this verse tell us to do this, and one thing I have learned over the years is that if God gives us a word in the Bible to do, then He will give us the strength and power to do it.

How do we rejoice always?  Well, I believe that we need to see the best in what is going on around us.  We need to be positive, and to know that even if the devil is bringing something against us, our Heavenly Father will get us through.  The Bible says in Romans 8:31, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”  Just knowing that God is for us is enough reason to rejoice!

So today, no matter what is going on, rejoice always!  Not for what is going on, but because your Father in Heaven is for you, and He will get you through it.  He will not let you down.  So today, rejoice always in Him!

Confession: Today, I make a quality decision to rejoice throughout the day.  When the enemy brings bad things my way, I will rejoice that my Heavenly Father will get me through them.  God is for me and not against me.  How can I lose?
