The Third Wednesday of Advent

IMG_9095

Rejoice in the LORD alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The LORD is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7

 

Rejoice!

And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.

Deuteronomy 12:7

 

Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

I Chronicles 16:10

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.

I Chronicles 16:31

But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because Thou defendest them: let them also that love Thy name be joyful in Thee.

Psalm 5:11

But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

Psalm 68:3

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.

Revelation 19:7

 

God tends to repeat the things that are important. These are only a few of the verses in the Bible that speak of rejoicing. So this is a lesson we should take to heart.

We can find joy in all things because God is with us.

One of my favorite verses is found in Psalm 118 – the twenty-fourth verse:

This is the day which the LORD hath made;

we will rejoice and be glad in it. 

 

I often begin my day with this verse.

Sometimes, when circumstances challenge me, I change the wording:

This is the day which the LORD has made:

I will find JOY in it.

 

Because no matter the circumstances,

God made this day.

It is good.
