Life is precious and we should honor God by rejoicing over each day He gives us. When we rejoice today we are saying thank you to the Lord. Though this world may weigh us down, we shall not fret because Christ has overcome the world. "But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33b. God tells us also that "everyone born of God overcomes the world." 1 John 5:4.
God finds pleasure in us when we rejoice in all His blessings. Today is one of them. I won't begin to name all the blessings in my life and guess the ones in yours. Let us pause on this Lord's day and thank Him for this day and the abundance of His blessings with which He alone has graced us. Salvation being the greatest of all. Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! Revelation 19:7a.
He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through waters on foot - come, let us rejoice in Him! Psalm 66:6. What is your sea that God has turned into dry land? What waters have you passed on foot because of God's grace? Small or large, we all have seas that He parts for us each day. He makes a way where there seems to be no way. Rejoice in Him and what He has done, is doing, and will do in your beautiful life.
I leave you with one of my favorite verses. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4. Quite frankly I memorized this to heart because it is attached to the famous and precious verses of 5-7.
May you feel His love and presence with you this day, regardless of what your circumstances bring or what life entails for you. God loves you! So do I. YOU are one of the reasons for this blog!!!
