DD - Rejoice Always
Phillipians 4:4-6 says, Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
Rejoicing should not come because of the worship songs or any outside circumstances. It should come from the inside of you. David said that his broken bones should also rejoice. You don't serve a suffering God, you serve a sovereign God. So rejoice!!
The manifestation of the mark of Christ in your life means that you are already dead to this world and the only thing that you live for is to serve the Lord. And the main purpose of serving God is to bless Him, no matter what the situation.
