It is our prayer for you that you are rejoicing in the Lord always, especially in these uncertain times that we are living in. It is so important that Paul repeated it in Philippians 4:4, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again, Rejoice!” Verse 5 says, “Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.” Now that is something to rejoice about – the Lord is near.
He will never leave us nor forsake us! Don’t let the devil or the news media or friends or family get your joy! Verse 6 & 7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Peace and joy are wonderful benefits of serving the Lord. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice we can rest assured that the Lord has us in the palm of His hands. Let’s think on these things because they are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report.
Let’s keep our hearts and minds stayed on the Word of God. Rejoice! God is faithful and His Word is true!
