Rejoice in the Lord always. Either way, it does not say rejoice in people, jobs, friends, clothes, cars, houses, position, fame or fortune. It does not say rejoice in our circumstances, it says, “rejoice in the Lord!” meaning our joy is in one place alone and that is on God. When our joy is truly in Jesus, there is a contentment and peace that is indescribable and not understandable. When we come to the place in our lives and realize things change, people change. God is the only one that cannot change – – Glory! So don’t get bent out of shape in your trials, rejoice in the ONE who knows how to sanctify us and make us whole and Holy. Rejoice knowing God loves you. Rejoice that He is always faithful and true to His Word and character and consistent in all He is and does. This is why we can “always” ..Rejoice in the Lord always: I will say it again: REJOICE!! Philippians 4:4. AMEN.
