be joyful

Today’s daily water is written by Doug Markle of Beloved Lord Ministries

Verse: Philippians 4:4 | Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Thoughts

I have a challenge for you today.  Be joyful, thankful and worship through this day.  Every time you are tempted to be angry, anxious, worried, stressed, or depressed, stop and rejoice in the Lord.  I am reminded of Psalm 43:5 where David told his soul what to do in the face of depression and oppression.

“Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.”

We do not have to be controlled by our emotions or the outside world.  Can you make it 24 hours with an attitude of joy, gratitude and adoration?

Prayer: Glorious God, you alone are worthy to be praise and today I chose to rejoice in you.  I love you.  I worship you.  I adore you.
