Rejoice In The Lord Always
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" Philippians 4:4
Scripture Focus: Deuteronomy 16:13-16
After the final harvest was gathered, the Feast of Tabernacles became a time of great rejoicing in Israel. And the joy was not optional, for the Lord said "Be joyful at your Feast..." (Deuteronomy 16:14). This appointed time was a season of thanksgiving in Israel, and they had much to be thankful for.
Rejoicing in the Lord is not dependent on our circumstances or surroundings. It is not dependent on the size of our 401K or the house we live in. It is not dependent on our position or our physical appearance. It is dependent on our relationship with Jesus Christ. Though we may face the greatest challenges, trusting in Christ, we can rejoice in the Lord!
"... for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:11-13).
Insight: Rejoice and be thankful for his love; there is no greater treasure.
