Let Us Rejoice And Be Glad
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for December 2, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. Lord, save us! Lord, grant us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. From the house of the Lord we bless you.”
Lord our God, our hearts are full of praise and thanks for your promise. You comfort and help us with this promise every day, enabling us to hold true through all distress. Remember us in these times, and let the cry, “Hosanna,” arise often in our hearts. Let a bright light shine out now as you once let it shine around the Lord Jesus, showing him as King and Savior. Protect us and bless us. Bless our land and all those appointed to govern. May your Spirit be with them so that they may carry out your will. For your will must be done and shall surely happen. In this we trust, and in this we hope. We praise you, O Lord our God. Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest! Amen.
Daily Commentary: Rejoice and be glad! For the Lord has come to us. How long have we been waiting for the Lord to shine His light upon us? When we rejoice in the Lord, everything changes. We stop thinking about ourselves and start looking at what we can do for others.
We stop complaining and offer ourselves to the Lords so that He can work through us in everything we do. We are to cultivate a glad spirit by rejoicing when others are blessed. “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.” Romans 12:15-16
Do you know what it means to rejoice when life brings you down? Don’t let society steal your joy, especially when God has given you the peace of His heart. He has not come to condemn you but to save your soul through His unconditional love. Rejoice through adversity no matter what you are going through. In 2 Corinthians 6:10, Paul tells us we must, “Always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything..” Rejoicing is a characteristic of life in God’s kingdom which is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Each one of us it like a blooming flower. Unless we water it with love and care, it will die a lonely and tragic death but God has come to water us with His love and shepherd us through the tough times so that we can rejoice and be glad always in our prayers of thanksgiving to the One that loves us! Rejoice, for this is the day the Lord has made!
