Lyric Devotional - Everything Beautiful pg. 4

What does it mean to truly rejoice in the Lord? In my own life, there are days when I feel so much anxiety and heaviness over me that it can easily cause me to waste away the time that God has given me to rejoice in. I find myself feeling overwhelmed with so much to do but not knowing where to start. I find myself magnifying the things around me instead of keeping my eyes on the things up above. This only causes me to feel defeated, trapped, and easily stressed out and it can be a struggle to rejoice. Sometimes we can start to feel lethargic and have no motivation or hope in our situations when we fail to apply the Lord’s truths and promises over our lives. God has already spoken His word to us for our protection and salvation in Him. God will always help us to rejoice no matter what, because Life is a gift from Him, even if sometimes it doesn’t feel like it is.

So how do we rejoice in the Lord always? Well for starters, pray to be filled with Holy Spirit daily. Joy is a fruit of the Spirit and we need the Spirit continually working in our lives in order to transform into the new creation God designed us to be. It’s an everyday practice for sure. So we must also die to ourselves daily so that we can truly hear the Lord correctly. Its a choice we have to make to follow Jesus and obey His word. But if we truly love the Lord with all our heart, then we will listen and obey because His word never returns void, it always proves His faithfulness.

The Bible 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; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:4-7
