Rejoice In the Lord Always

Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered; let those also who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them REJOICE before God; yes, let them REJOICE exceedingly. Sing to God, sing praises to His name; extol Him who rides on the clouds, by His name YAH, and REJOICE before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation. God sets the solitary in families; he brings out those who are bound into prosperity; but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
- Psalm 68:1-6 (NKJV)

Rejoicing is a word that describes the process of refilling ourselves with the joy of the Lord whenever the need arises. This word is used in the same sense as driving to the petrol station to refuel our fuel tanks when the fuel level of our vehicles gets low or empty.

In other words, we should endeavour to always monitor the level of joy in our “joy tanks” on a regular basis, and to fill up our tanks with joy so that we are never empty but always filled with joy. This is exactly how the apostles of the early church lived and overcame the trials of their time.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand” (Philippians 4:4-5).

From God’s perspective, nothing is too hard to be fixed, too broken to be mended or too dead to be resurrected! So, we can all afford to rejoice in anticipation of His breakthrough in our lives.

Beloved, I prophesy that you will experience a sudden and mighty breakthrough this year. It is your time to shine. Amen!

Additional Scripture Reference(s):
Philippians 3:3
Prayer & Confession of Faith: I am full of joy; my joy tank is never empty! I rejoice because my breakthrough has come and God has restored all things to me. Hallelujah!
