“4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7
For the Child of God our rejoicing in the Lord is not a fake it until you make it event. No, no. Our prayer and supplication is not an outward religious display for others to hear but a worship in spirit and in truth of who Jesus is and what He did on Calvary’s Cross for whosoever will believe.
Our rejoicing in the Lord is a sincere thanksgiving unto Jesus Christ because we are unashamed and fully persuaded that He and He alone is able to keep that which we have committed unto Him against the day.
When the storms rage, we look unto Him and the peace which surpasses all understanding keeps our hearts and our minds from vain imaginations and religious philosophies.
For the Born Again Believer, His praise will forever be on our lips. We are just passing through this pilgrim land…this world is not our home. It will pass away but we will forever be with the Lord. The only thing we can take with us is our faith in the finished work of Christ Jesus and the souls of our Brethren.
“And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that hear say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17
There is a great harvest in these last of the last days. Go and tell them to come…come and take the water of life freely. Rejoice in the Lord. Be a witness in the storm. Stand still and see the Salvation of the Lord.
