‘This is the day Yehovah has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it!’ Psalm 118:24 (NKJV)
Are you enjoying life? There are seasons of life that are harder than others, but it is still important to try to find the glimmer of beauty in each day; the glimpses of Yehovah. Rather than just enduring day-to-day, rather than struggling on, reach out to others who love you, and who love Him, and allow them to encourage you. Every day holds the potential to bless you, to teach you, train you and develop your relationship with Yehovah. A useful way of thinking about your walk with Yehovah is to ‘live as though Yeshua died yesterday, rose today, and is coming tomorrow!’ No matter what life is like now, He is coming back! You have an eternal hope and a future. You are blessed, even now. You have access to all the wonders of heaven, right here on earth. You can enter the throne room of Yehovah. Even if you don’t always feel like praising or rejoicing, Paul exhorts you to ‘Rejoice in Yehovah always. Again I will say, rejoice!’ Yehovah is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Yehovah; and the Shalom of Yehovah, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Yeshua Hamashiach! (Philippians 4:4-7). He explains why you can rejoice in any and all circumstances: 1) Yehovah is at hand ? He is close beside you, always with you. 2) Don’t be anxious – He will give you Shalom. 3) He hears your requests – He knows all your needs. 4) Yeshua will guard your heart and mind. Choose to praise, and His Shalom will flow!
