Rejoice Evermore!

[Tuesday, December 5]

“Let it be a day to rejoice, says the Lord. Rejoice for your healing, rejoice for your blessing, rejoice over your family, and rejoice for tomorrow. For even as you offer up cheerful rejoicing shall good things be attracted to you.”



Prophetic Scripture:

Rejoice evermore (1 Thessalonians 5:16).

First Thessalonians 5:16 is one of the shortest verses in the Bible, but it really packs a punch. It’s telling us to keep a cheerful attitude all the time. In fact, the word rejoice in the Greek means cheerful. God wants us to have a cheerful demeanor in all circumstances. Of course, we know that this isn’t always easy to do. Sometimes we feel just the opposite, especially when things don’t go just like we wanted. So why
would the Lord tell us to be cheerful all the time if it wasn’t that easy? Probably because God knows that a cheerful approach changes things. First of all, it has a tremendous effect on you personally. Cheerfulness helps you overcome tough times. It gives you the mental wherewithal to rise above things. Second, cheerfulness also makes people like being around you more. That in itself offers encouragement and strength. Another thing cheerfulness does is brighten up the atmosphere. It’s like opening the blinds and letting the sun shine into the window. However, I am convinced that God wants us to be cheerful for yet another reason. That is because rejoicing and cheerfulness is exactly the opposite of everything the devil is. When we rejoice, the devil just cannot hang around! Without the devil hanging around, we open the way for good things to be attracted to us. Go ahead and try it and see what rejoicing all the time will do for you today!


Prayer:

Lord, I rejoice today! I rejoice over every situation that concerns me, especially
over ______________________. As I rejoice, every demon has to
flee, and I thank You, Lord, that good things shall come my way. In Jesus’
Name, amen.
