Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
Praise God! Always be joyful in the Lord! Whatever happens, rejoice in the Lord. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 Be glad now and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things. Everyone in this world may seem to be happy outwardly but only God’s children will have His joy and peace in their heart. Take time to encourage others in Christ, a kind word of sharing Christ’s love will brighten up their day.
I would like to share a story which many of you might have heard already. A woman was walking with a big baggage on her head. A man who crossed by in his cart offered to help the woman. She got into the cart but still had her baggage on her head. When the man saw that, he wondered and asked her why she was still carrying the baggage without placing it on the cart. Only then she realized that she no longer had to carry that on her head and took the baggage and placed it on the cart.
Some people pray unto God and make known all their cares and burdens to Him but after that they do not leave it fully to Him but carry those burdens in their heart. Once you tell everything to God, trust that He will take care of the rest and then be glad and rejoice in Him. Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart according to His will.
