MORNINGTIME 2514
 
Rejoice evermore. 1 Thessalonians 5:16. Strong's Definition: Rejoice ; "A primary verb; to be full of "cheer" that is calmly happy or well off; impersonal especially as a salutation (on meeting or parting) be well: - farewell be glad God speed greeting hail joy (-fully) rejoice". Thayer's Definition: "to rejoice, be glad, to rejoice exceedingly to be well, thrive in salutations, hail! at the beginning of letters: to give one greeting, salute". How can a Believer do such a thing? Has anyone looked at all the death and destruction, foolishness and phoniness,  family trials, troubles, and tribulations these days? And the definition of evermore? Strong's Definition: "From G3956 and G3753; every when that is at all times: - always (-s) ever (-more)". Thayer's Definition: "at all times, always, ever". That pretty much clinches it, this is an impossibility for a man to do. YES, THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR MAN TO DO!!! But it is NOT impossible for the Lord to do THROUGH man. Does this mean you're happy when a close family member suddenly dies? No, of course not, this is not about your "happiness". This is all about you Trusting the Lord that He knows ALL about everything, and has a Plan to grow you stronger in and through Christ. When the  "something" happens, this is you falling on your face at the feet of the Lord and declaring, "Lord, I don't understand your Ways and your Timing, but I trust you to work this all out for your Glory as You hold my hand and help me to lean on you for Strength as we go through this Together. Build my Faith and Trust in you that I may be able to help someone else when they go through a similar time. I Praise You and Trust You in all things as You Lead me into greater and greater Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity, all for the Glory of Christ, in Jesus Holy Name, amen and amen". The Lord desires to do these things in and through us, even infused into us, as a Testimony to a dead and dying world that wants to, Be Blessed.
