Rest, REJOICE and Praise in 2012

10 01 2012

Last time we talked about Resting in God, in this blog we are going to talk about Rejoicing with God in 2012.


To rejoice is defined by Webster’s as “to feel joy or great delight”. How often do we rejoice at a football game when our team makes a touchdown or better yet when they win the game? We rejoice with our family and friends when something wonderful happens like the birth of a baby, but do we ever think to rejoice with Lord?


To join God in rejoicing you must first understand that God rejoices: “As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you”. ISA 62:5   God not only rejoices but he rejoices over us, for he loves us and is pleased with us.


Most of us can rejoice in God, Psalms 9:1-2 is one example; I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. Psalms 9:1-2


Other of us can rejoice before him: But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds– his name is the LORD — and rejoice before him. PS 68:3-4

Isaiah 65:18-19 shows us, to rejoice with God is to recognize what He is doing and come into agreement with Him, then choose to rejoice with Him. “But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. I will rejoice over Jerusalem- and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more”. ISA 65:18-19


God rejoices in our everyday lives and I believe knowing this fact that God rejoices over us is key to our rejoicing with Him!


Join me next time as we talk about “Praising” our God!
