Whatever happens // 04-03-19

“Whatever happens, my dear brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord. I never get tired of telling you these things, and I do it to safeguard your faith.” Philippians‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

It is so important that we rejoice in the Lord always, that we find our joy in Jesus and what He has done for us! The joy that comes from God’s love and grace, and from knowing I am forgiven and saved cannot be found anywhere else. Rejoicing in His salvation work, in His presence with me and His plan for my life will safeguard my faith whatever happens. Keeping my eyes on Jesus will save me from all unhelpful distractions that will try to pull me away from His purposes, and rejoicing in the truth that my life and future is safe in His hands will keep my faith strong when discouragement comes or fear tempts me to give up. Lord, I want to start this new week by rejoicing in You, thank You for Your daily grace, for Your mercies that are new every morning and thank You for never giving up on me. Amen 🙏🏼
