Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday.

Isaiah 25:6-10
Psalm 23
Philippians 4:1-9
Matthew 22:1-14
Philippians 4: 4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
 
What kind of week have you had?   Is is a week where its easy to say “Praise God!” and to rejoice in the Lord?   Or is it a week where your struggling to keep your head up and sometimes wonder where God is in you week?   The good news is that no matter how you “feel” about your week – these verses apply to our daily lives.

 

First, we are called to “Rejoice Always”, even when its hard to do so.  It doesn’t say to rejoice  only on the good days – we are commanded to rejoice always. Did you rejoice today?  If not – take time to rejoice, right now!   Secondly, we are told to not worry – but bring everything to God.  Lay our worries, problems, and concerns at his feet.  Have you done that today?  If not, I invite you to take your stress, worries, and concerns and raise them in prayer.

 

Finally, if we do these things –  we are promised the peace of God!  How amazing is our God!  We long for that peace everyday.  Take a hold of this scripture, claim this promise. Rejoice! Amen!
