Rejoice even when you feel there’s nothing to rejoice about!

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” 1 Peter 4:12-13

While in prayer one day, I asked God what did He want me to tell you. He said, “Tell them to rejoice!” I said Lord, how can I tell them that? So many are hurting right now. How can I tell them to rejoice? It seems like the last thing they want to do.” He said, “Exactly. The last thing they want to do is rejoice in Me, but rejoicing in Me is what I want them to do.”

You may feel as though you don’t have anything to rejoice about, but we always have reason to rejoice in the Lord. Our rejoicing gives way to worship, it gives way to sacrificial praise and brings about a breakthrough. In my life, I’ve had to rejoice when I didn’t see any manifestation. It was an act of my faith in God.

So it is with you. Your rejoicing is an act of your faith. It puts your entire focus away from your problems and onto God. It magnifies God and brings Him on the scene.

Prayer: Father God, I know you are my God and you won’t let me down. You will do everything you’ve promised. Help me to rejoice in you by faith and continue to rejoice until I see manifestation in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    ***Let Us Sing Songs Of Praise ***To The Rock Of
    ***Our Salvation ***
    Psalms 95: 1 – 6
    O God, I ‘m truly grateful to have You as my rock to stand upon and my soft place to fall,when the weight of my despair threatens to pull me under I know that You,Lord,will take me by the hand and pull me out of the deep waters and place me upon dry land. No matter how much I cry and hurt, I feel a place deep within where You reside,and I know that these painful times will pass and that I will heal with time and patience and Your love. I would rather not go through this pain,but I do so with confidence and faith that it is for my spiritual growth and that I will come out on the other side a stronger and better person. In Jesus Name.
    Amen,Amen,And Amen!!!…
    “I’m grateful to the Lord for reaching out and drawing me under His wings. His love is so great that He knows my troubles,is concerned for my welfare,and is working to renew my Joy. “

    🎤I’ve lost some good friends along life’s way..
    Some loved ones departed in Heaven to stay..
    But Thank God I didn’t lose EVERYTHING..
    I’ve lost faith in people who said they cared..
    In time of my crisis they were NEVER there..
    But in my disappointments, in my season of pain..
    One thing NEVER wavered, one thing NEVER changed..
    I NEVER lost my hope..
    I NEVER lost my joy..
    I NEVER lost my faith..
    But most of all..
    I’ve let some Blessings slip away..
    When I lost my focus & went astray..
    I lost possessions that were so dear..
    I lost some battles walking in fear..
    But in the midst of my struggles, in my season of pain..
    One thing NEVER wavered..
    One thing NEVER changed..
    I NEVER lost my hope..
    I NEVER lost my joy..
    I NEVER lost my faith..
    But most of all..
    In spite of it all..Lord, I Thank You for NEVER letting me lose my hope, joy, faith & PRAISE!!
    LORD, I JUST LOVE YOU!!💓😍❤🤗💗😙💝😊
    Lord, Please Continue To Bless & Shine Your Light Of Love Upon Your Obedient Servant Sister Kesha, Her Awesome Team, This Amazing Ministry, My Sister Felicia & My DOTK Sisters💖!!
