Devotion 3-29-24, Philippians 4:4- "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!" Rejoice! It is a commandment. Therefore, it has absolutely nothing to do with how you feel or what is happening in your life. "Rejoice in the Lord." We are not commanded to rejoice for just anything. We are to "rejoice in the Lord." Delight, be glad in Him- in God. It has nothing to do with the situation and everything to do with God. God knows your situation. He is fully aware of what you are experiencing. He may or may not intervene according to your prayer. He is God and He really will do what is best in the big picture. So why rejoice, when, in our estimation, it may just turn out very badly. You are human, limited flesh and blood. God is massive, unlimited, always present, all-knowing. You know what you see, feel, think, and want. God knows your heart and soul and He knows your needs. God loves you! You are limited; He is infinite. Therefore, no matter what, in all circumstances, we are to rejoice - not that things went our way, but that God is in charge, not us! Rejoice in the Lord who loves you deeply; rejoice in the Lord who loves you so much, He planned and executed His plan for our salvation - Jesus's death and resurrection. Rejoice in the Lord who takes up residency in you, as you pray for salvation and give Him your life. Rejoice in the Lord, who does answer prayer and does miraculously intervene in our lives. Rejoice in the Lord, who weeps with you over evil, and laughs and rejoices with you, over all that is good in the world. Rejoice in the Lord, always, no matter what. Always, at all times, in all circumstances, rejoice in the Lord, praising His Name!
