REJOICE IN WHAT HE GIVES

Read: Psalm 118:1-29
Psalm 118:1-29 “O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever. I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them. They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them. They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them. Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death. Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord: this gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter. I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the Lord ‘s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord. God is the Lord, which hath showed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar. Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”
MEMORISE: This was the Lord’s doing; It is marvellous in our eyes. This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it . (Psalm 118:23-24)
EXPOSITION
There are days when the last thing one want to do is to rejoice: when situation seem unpleasant; wind blows harshly; friends leave. Empire collapses. Sweet songs become sour. Bitterness, sorrow and sadness replace joy and happiness; it seems the world is about crashing; the memory of great times disappears; all routes close, and help seizes from coming. The very moment sickness and/or diseases strike; the mood is down, Situations are out of hand; there seems to be nothing to rejoice about; Sorrow or guilt overwhelms.
As bad as it is, other people also experience it. We aren’t alone in the struggle. David experienced these often. He was betrayed by love ones. Dethrone by his very own. He was rejected and dejected. He became object of shame and ridicule. Yet, he admonished us, as he did, to rejoice for it is the making of God. Psalm 118:24. This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
When our work is at low level, that is what He has provided, live in it with joy and gladness. No matter how terrible our family looks, that is the one He gives, live peacefully and gratefully in His provision. Enjoy it. Be thankful and have joy in your heart for it. In time of challenges and problems, appreciate God for life, live it fully and rejoice in it, for none of these is your making; He gives all. He made darkness and created light, so the Bible says. When there is life hope is alive. All these will soon become history, only trust and depend on Him, good time is around the corner, and you will soon laugh like SARAH.
PRAYER POINT
1. Pray for the strength of God to activate a joyful mood, no matter what.
2. Pray for those passing through life challenges in your church that God will visit them and turn there sorrows into joy.
3. Pray for inmates that God will help them to see Him in their situation.
