The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. – Psalms 97:1
Meditation: Lest we forget, our God reigns. He reigns in Heaven. He reigns on Earth. Praise God for His mercy and grace! Praise the Lord for His majesty and holiness! For all that is good, praise the Almighty!
Too often, we forget that we are commanded to rejoice. What a wonderful and amazing commandment! It’s like being commanded to party and have a good time. Joy is part of being saved by grace and having faith in the Savior.
We are not saved to suffer. Rather we are saved to fellowship with God’s Spirit eternally. We are adopted into the family of God to enjoy Him forever. “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4).
Call To Action: Being a Christian does not mean that all we experience will make us happy. However, inspite of the challenges we face, we are empowered, encouraged and quickened by the Holy Spirit to live a triumphant, jubilant life smiling in the face of death. No matter what obstacles come your way today, remember that the Lord reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice in Him.
