Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
What it means: The love of the Lord is so vast we can hardly begin to understand it. No matter what we may be going through, we can rejoice in knowing that he loves us! Praying is easy when we need something but how about thanking him for the things we have? Or even the good times? Whenever I feel extremely happy or laugh hard, I thank the Lord for those tiny moments even.
Prayer: Lord we thank you for your never-ending love for us. Please forgive us when we live freely in our own happiness but depend on you in the hard times only. Work in me to rejoice always and pray continually. Amen.
