Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!
Philippians 4:4 (AMP)
What a blessing to know that we can continually delight ourselves in the Lord regardless of any circumstances and conditions! When we delight and gladden ourselves in Him, we consider His tremendous love for us. We allow this love to become a reality in our hearts, to take us over and saturate us as we meditate on His unmerited favor and the promises of victory we have in Him. This causes us to truly rejoice; and as a result, we are in a state of expecting to see His goodness and His favor showing up in our lives.
