Day 58

October 18th, 2014

Rejoice Psalm (2)“The summons to rejoice is sounded no less than seventy times in the New Testament…The New Testament is a book of Joy.” Selwyn Hughes from “Every Day Light – Water for the Soul.” I may not pay attention to something the first time I hear it. I may think that it’s not relevant. I may believe it doesn’t apply to me. However, after hearing, seeing, and reading the same thing over and over again, I begin to take notice and I begin to realize that this must be important because it’s been referenced several times. It takes me back to my school days when we knew that there was a test every Friday on what we went over that week. If my teacher went over the same area more than once, it was a good guess that it would be found in that week’s test. My teacher would reference it several times because she wanted to make sure I understood. The fact that rejoice is mentioned so many times in the Bible tells me that it is extremely important to allow joy into my life. Everything in the Bible is important. Having the joy of the Lord is extremely important. Nehemiah 8:10 tells us that the joy of the Lord is our strength. We need this strength to carry out our day-to-day activities in the name of the Lord. My heart may be broken, but I still have the Joy of the Lord. I may be tired. I may feel rejected and dejected, but I still have the Joy of the Lord. This joy gives me strength to carry on. And therein lies my Joy.
