Most of us have had to re-do a job that wasn’t done right the first time. I’m sure you have had a re-fill on your favorite beverage on a hot summer day. The prefix “re”means to do it again. Most of us are creatures of habit. We do the same things over and over again. That’s not a bad thing, if the things we are repeating are honorable.
The apostle Paul says in The book of Philippians to rejoice in the Lord and again I say rejoice. So, rejoicing or praising the Lord should be a regular practice in our daily lives. If you connect that scripture with another verse that says… sorrow not for the joy of The Lord is your strength… then you realize that rejoicing and strength are directly related to each other.
In other words, every time you rejoice in the Lord, divine strength from heaven is energizing your spirit and, in fact, your entire being.
Words of rejoicing like “Father, I’m so thankful today that you loved me enough to send Jesus and because of the work of the cross, I have victory in everything… This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it… Thank you Lord for always taking care of me… I praise you and worship you every day of my life… For the Lord is good and his mercies endure forever…” this will cause you to be strong in Him. Joy and strength will keep you company when you have a spirit of rejoicing in your life.
Rejoice, praise, and worship the Lord at every opportunity. Then you will find strength for every battle. A joyful countenance will come upon you that cannot be mistaken. Soon the power of rejoicing will infiltrated every area of your life. REJOICE and again I say REJOICE!
