Ten Reasons to Rejoice

10 03 2010

The world is full of gloomy news. The headlines are full of doom, disaster, and discouragement. In Philippians 4:4, Paul tells us to “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”  Here are ten reasons to rejoice today.

1. “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118:24. Today is covered with God’s fingerprints. He molded and shaped this day just for you.

2. Today is a fresh start and a new beginning. You have a clean slate. It is like New Year’s Day, only better. Make the most of it.

3. God loves you – passionately, intensely, personally, and immeasurably.

4. Your sins have been forgiven. They have been washed clean, wiped away, and thrown into the depths of the sea.

5. The grave and the enemy have been defeated. Shout the victory!

6. God is in control. You do not have to be.

7. Every one of God’s promises are “YES!” in Jesus. 

8. God plans to work in you, on you, and through you today.

9. God is very close to you right now. Take a moment, quiet your mind, and  listen to Him whisper to your heart.

10. You can hear God’s voice, see God’s face, and feel His hand any time you want today. Just open your Bible.

My Jesus Resolution today is to be deliberate about rejoicing. I am going to count my blessings, keep my eyes open for God’s movement, and set my heart on things above. What are you rejoicing about today?
