Rejoice in the Lord’s Presence and His Lordship!


This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.Rejoice in the Lord and never stop rejoicing in Him. Today the message is joyful; the Father God seeks true worshipers. And when two or three are gathered in His Holy name, Christ the King stands in the midst of those who worship Him in Spirit and Truth. He is the Alpha and Omega, He is forever Faithful and True and He alone is worthy to be praised.

Psalm 150 says, “Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse. Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness. Praise Him with trumpet sound; with harp and lyre. Praise Him with timbrel and dancing; with stringed instruments and pipe. Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD”.

In unison, when high Praise was heard in Solomon’s temple, it was amazingly ecstatic. God’s glory came down to abide in the praises of His people. Celebration of praise brings great joy. There is fullness of joy in God’s presence. The eternal pleasures are at His right hand.

But the self worshipers, enjoy the material blessings and Spiritual gifts and momentary pleasures in the presence of God and totally ignore the deeper things in the heart of God. Without truly engaging their heart with Christ, the ecstasy seekers become worshipers in vain. If you accept His presence and reject His Lordship over your life and character, the joy of the Lord will not be your strength for ever.

We are called to grow in full maturity in Christ from strength to strength and glory to glory. But if you faint in the day of trouble and find your strength was small, then you cannot overcome adversity. If you constantly do the perfect will of God, Joy of the Lord will illuminate you at all seasons of life.

The Kingdom of God is in Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost, but it functions only in the inseparable union with Christ the King of Kings.

To revive your strength, always deny yourself and submit to God and resist the devil. Constantly renew your mind to please God and rejoice in His Lordship in your life.Then you will be strong enough to face the music at all the seasons of life. Take the cross and follow Christ faithfully, then His mercy and grace will follow you endlessly.

So Habakuk says, “Though the fig tree does not blossom, and no fruit is on the vines; though the produce of the olive fails, and the fields yield no food; though the flock is cut off from the fold, and there is no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, and makes me tread upon the heights”.

If you do this rest of your life, you will always say, Christ has put more joy in my heart, than when their wheat and new wine have yielded abundantly. In peace I will lie down and sleep, Lord alone makes me dwell in safety and confident trust. Welcome to fully celebrate a joyful life with Christ in the Kingdom of God.

I wish you a new year of everlasting Joy in Christ the King. God bless you. Amen!!!
