The dictionary definition of Rejoice is, ‘to feel or show great joy or delight’. Many Christians when asked how they felt on the day of their salvation, talk about the peace, joy, and delight they felt, in essence they rejoice. Of course, life can then go on to throw a few curve-balls our way, but keeping that sense of being able to rejoice is really, really important to our worship and faith.
Philippians 4:4-9 says ‘Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God’.
You can’t get clearer than that. Sometimes, when all else fails, and everything seems to be going wrong, to turn the tide of circumstance, let’s just lift our voices and REJOICE!
It’s more difficult to frown than smile, rejoice!
Lord, no matter what comes my way, let me come back to rejoicing in You, and who You are in my life. Amen
When did you last take an hour out with a friend and just rejoice together over what has done in your lives ?
