《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Th 5:16-18)
Meditation one: Do you have more joys or more grumbles in your life? Is it possible to have joy always? It all depends on where the source of your joy comes from. It is not reliable to hinge on the environment, to depend on people, to count on wealth, or to rely on fame and fortune. The only way is to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ who can save us, because there is a great inexpressible joy in Him that is full of glory.
Meditation two: Is there any relevance among rejoicing always, praying continually, and giving thanks in all circumstances? Yes, we can rejoice always, because in any great difficulties, we can always entrust to the Lord through prayer. Nothing in Jesus is something He does not know, and there is no hurdle in Jesus that He cannot overcome. Since there is nothing too hard for God, of course we can rest assured and give thanks in all circumstances.
Prayer: Thank God, because the will You have set for us in Jesus Christ is to rejoice always. Today, whether I am in defeat or prosperity, blessed or hardship, peace or danger, health or sickness, but I trust that Your will is, through all these events, to allow me to learn to give thanks in all circumstances. Let me be a person who knows how to be grateful and also becomes the joy of others. I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen!
