Philippians 4 Verse 4: “Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again; Rejoice!”
The Apostle Paul was in prison when he wrote these words.
When we can not control or choose our circumstances we can still decide we will respond to them.
Why can we do this it is because of all Our Lord and Our Friend has promised us and He said, ‘He will never leave us or forsake us. Hebrew 13 Verse 5:
In the same verse it tells us to ‘be satisfied with what we have’, before going on to tell us we can do this because of His promise to never leave us or forsake us.
Sometimes we struggle in ourselves and we settle for defeat in circumstances we could turn around by mediating on His promises.
His promises are true, and we should see ourselves the way Our Lord and Our Friend sees us. As His redeemed child and the Holy Spirit dwells with in us to help us to think better and to do better. Paul found this way to think better and to do better, by rejoicing in the Lord always, and Paul reiterates I will say it again rejoice.
Rejoicing in and Praising Our creator God, Ephesians 3 Verse 20: Praising Him because, “Now in Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think—according to the power that works in You.”
Rejoicing in and Praising Our Creator God; 2 Corinthians 12 Verse 9: “His Grace is sufficient for us”.
Grace is the Goodness of Our Lord and Our Friend’s Love and Mercy to us, what ever Our Lord and Our Friend says about us, we should say the same too, and by doing this it will be easy to ‘Rejoice in The Lord always’, and easy to overcome what ever comes our way.
Rejoice in the Lord Always.
