Rejoice

TODAY’S VERSE

So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.
Romans 5:11 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I can understand a person that has just come into a relationship with God rejoicing in the fact that they are a new friend of God. But what about you? Do you know God? Have you recieved Him as your savior? If so, that makes you a friend of God. There is no statute of limitations on the joy that comes with knowing that the Almighty God Himself has declared you His friend. Today, whether you are a new believer or have known God a hundred years, stop and consider what it means to be God’s friend. It is something to rejoice about!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, today I rejoice in this wonderful relationship I have with you. Thank You for declaring me Your friend. Because of Jesus.
AMEN

Today You Can Rejoice

TODAY’S VERSE
“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24

TODAY’S THOUGHT
“Happiness is a choice.” This was a title of a book that helped change my life. For me the “aha” came when I realized that my worry, fear, and sadness was a habit. I knew that a habit could be broken and a new habit could take its place. So it was very exciting to consider that happiness could be a habit, too. To help me start the day with the habit of “happiness,” I would get up and quote today’s verse out loud: “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” That simple habit would allow me to focus and begin a string of thoughts that would lead to a more joyful outlook on life. It would allow me to energize faith before negative and pessimistic thinking could take root in my morning. How about you? Is happiness the choice that you have made today? If not, it is not too late. Happiness, joy, peace and faith can be yours today. God has provided it, you need to choose it. This is the day the LORD has made; go ahead, rejoice and be glad in it.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, today I choose happiness, joy and faith. Thank You that this is a day that You have made; please help me to rejoice today and be glad in it. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

What Do You See?

TODAY’S VERSE
“The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you see? A lot of it depends on what you are looking through. Each of us come to the Scriptures with different lenses. We see through our experiences, beliefs, senses and personality. So although scripture is true, we may have a skewed view of it. For example, in today’s verse what do you believe? When you close your eyes, do you see God as a mighty one who will save you? Or do you have some doubts as to His ability or desire? Do you see God as rejoicing over you with gladness? Is He exulting over you with loud singing? Is He ecstatic in His love toward you? Or do you have a hard time feeling like a recipient of that kind of attention from God? Finally, can you picture God quieting you with His love? Does the very thought of God bring peace to your heart? God’s word is true, but unless we read it and challenge our thinking, we will not align our beliefs with God’s. Today, ask God to help make His word clear to you and start to see what He wants you to. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me read Your word. Holy Spirit, help me to see what You really want me to see and to believe it with all of my heart. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Rejoice

TODAY’S VERSE
“But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God’s presence. Let them be filled with joy. Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the LORD—rejoice in his presence!”
Psalms 68:3-4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Joy comes from relationships. And one of the most joyous relationships we can have is with God. Why? Because God created us that way. He created us for fellowship with Him. It is the longing of God’s heart to have communion with us. We love our children and we hope that they rejoice in that fact, but who is really blessed? Isn’t it us, the parents? We are the ones who had the joy of bringing them into the world and nurturing them into maturity. Aren’t we the real winners? What joy our children bring us. Likewise, God gets great pleasure out of His relationship with us. And at the same time we are blessed by God. How thankful this should make us. How full of praise. So today, rejoice that you are loved by God, deeply loved. Be glad in His presence for He desires your relationship. Be filled with joy that you bring the Almighty pleasure. Sing praises for all His love for you. Rejoice!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, how I thank You for Your love for me. How full of praise I am in the thought that I can really know You. How glad I am to dwell in Your presence. Thank You Lord. How I praise Your name.
AMEN

Worship Him

TODAY’S VERSE
“Day after day and night after night they keep on saying, ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”’
Revelation 4:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What is it about God’s Holiness that moves me so much? Holiness, I can’t comprehend it. I try to put my mind around it but it is too vast. I think what moves me when I sing, “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty” is the fact that this Holy God allows me to adore Him, to worship Him. To be in His presence and sing about the very thing that would normally separate me from Him is so humbling. His majesty, His power, His might, His Holiness; who are we that He would allow us to sing His praise? And yet He desires our praise. He rejoices in our worship. He invites us to say with all of Heaven, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.” Today, worship Him. He is Holy. He is worthy of all our praise.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, how I adore You. How I worship You. Thank You for Your Holiness, majesty and power. Thank You for Your grace and love. Truly, You are worthy of all my praise.
AMEN

Praise God

TODAY’S VERSE
“Praise the LORD! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. Let us celebrate, let us rejoice, let us give him the glory!”
Revelation 19:6-7 (NLT)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
How excited are you about knowing God? You would think we would be ecstatic, but instead our joy is minimal. I have seen sports fan get more excited about their teams wining a championship than most churches do during worship. This is because in reality most of us only know about God. Sure, we have asked Him to be our Savior, but we haven’t taken the time to really know Him. We know nothing of His power, wisdom or glory. How then can we say with John, “The Lord our God, the Almighty reigns”? If we are going to celebrate God, if we are going to rejoice because of Him, then we need to know God in a deep and personal way. This will only happen if we spend time in His presence. In His presence He will reveal Himself to us. In His presence we will learn of His power, wisdom and His glory. In His presence we will learn to praise, celebrate and rejoice in Him. So today stop everything. Stop and for one moment enter His presence and consider who He is. Sense that He is the Almighty one. Feel how worthy He is of all our praise. For just a moment consider how great He is and then know this; He loves you! The Almighty One loves you, so go ahead, celebrate, rejoice and give Him the glory!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for not appreciating You enough. You are the Almighty One and You reign on high. I rejoice that I know You and come to You with joy and celebration. You are worthy of all my praise and I give You all the glory.
AMEN
