There will be rejoicing again…….


“The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents and private dwellings

of the [uncompromisingly] righteous: the right hand of the Lord does valiantly

and achieves strength!”

Psalm 118:15

 

I love the picture this verse paints. What a statement right?

 

This verse is prophetic for me in this time. There were seasons in the past

where the sound of rejoicing had been heard in my home.

But not at the moment.

There are things I am waiting on God for, things I am praying for

and that is why this verse spoke to me.

 

The victorious rejoice, the sick woman who has had her prayer for healing

answered rejoices, the man who has finally gotten a job rejoices, a young

man or woman who has received a full scholarship to the university of their

dreams rejoices.

 

Like I said before, this verse is a prophecy, a prophecy for the person who is in the

dark right now, for the person who is crying out to God for an answer, for

a miracle!

It’s declaring that, even though things may seem to be falling apart

in your life and things may seem like they are never going to get better,

and the pain will never go away, don’t despair because the day of rejoicing will

come. The day of rejoicing will come friend.

 

The healing will come, the breakthrough will come, the answer will come,

salvation will come!

That is a promise!

Let’s read that verse again,

 

“The voice of the rejoicing and salvation is in the tents and private dwellings

of the [uncompromisingly] righteous: the right hand of the Lord does valiantly

and achieves strength!”

Psalm 118:15

 

No matter what the enemy throws at us there will be rejoicing and salvation in our

homes. No matter how hard he tries to keep us down he will not succeed. Let’s

look at another amazing passage of scripture,

 

“When the Lord brought back the captives [who entered] to Zion, we were like

those who dream [it seemed so unreal].

Then were our mouths filled with laughter, and our tongues with singing.

Then they said, among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them.

The Lord has done great things for us! We are glad!. “

Psalm 126:1-3

 

I love this passage of scripture! The people of Israel condemned themselves when

they forsook the Lord.

They were taken captive because of their unfaithfulness to God.

Their enemies thought they had won. They thought they had eradicated them

for good. But that was not the end of the story for them.

He delivered them from the land of their captivity!

He turned their mourning and their darkness into rejoicing, into laughter!

There was singing and laughter where there was once dismay, pain and crying.

Where there was guilt and condemnation there was now favor and grace!

Where there was hopelessness there was now hope!

 

This was their testimony,

 

“The Lord has done great things for us! We are glad!”

 

Your winter will end. The sound of rejoicing and salvation will be in your home!

You will not die, but live!

Believe in God’s word. No matter what you facing today believe there will be rejoicing

and salvation in your home. You will be rejoicing because God has been good to you.

There will be rejoicing because your prayers have been answered.

You will rejoice because the Lord has been faithful and continues to be faithful to you!

As I end I want to leave you with one more scripture,

 

“I shall not die but live, and shall declare the works and recount the illustrious acts

of the Lord.”

 

Bless you friends……

When evil is all I see…..


THOUGHT OF THE DAY

 

“All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by

anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart

has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].

Proverbs 15:15

 

This scripture spoke to me this morning. There have been a

few things on my mind which have got me in quite a panic,

things that have the potential to turn my life upside down.

The feelings come and go but today as I read Proverb I saw

where I erred. God doesn’t want me to stay in fear. He doesn’t

want me to be anxious. He wants me to bring all those feelings

to Him.

 

I don’t help myself when I allow anxious thoughts and

forebodings to control me.

I looked up the word “foreboding” and this is what I

found:

 

Foreboding – A feeling of coming evil

 

My days are made evil when I allow those kind of thoughts to

control me! Expecting to lose, expecting bad things to happen,

expecting God to not come through do real harm!

As sinners we have a natural proclivity to be negative but we

can’t allow it. We must fight all things negative with everything

in us. With the help of the Holy Spirit we can be positive,

with His help we can begin to see light when darkness threatens

to overwhelm us.

 

“but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of

circumstances].

Proverbs 15:15

 

That’s the kind of attitude I want. He is glad because he knows

God is faithful in the storm.

Hell has broken loose in his life but he is glad because he knows

God will not let him go and that hell has no power over him!

He knows God is fighting for him.

He knows he will win because God is with him.

Nothing can shake him!

 

Regardless of the circumstances, regardless of what’s

happening around him he is glad because he knows,

God is his Strong Tower!

Things will turn out alright“, is his conviction!

 

So with that said, I know what I should do. God has yet

to fail me. He has been faithful to me in the darkest of nights.

He has proved Himself again and again……

Even though things are hard at the moment I will refuse to

see disaster.

Instead I choose to see God because He will come through

for me! He will not let me slip, He will not leave me to be

taken out by the enemy! I will live and not die because He

is faithful!!!!

 

What about you friend?
