4: Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say, Rejoice.
Loving Father, thank You for Your gift of joy and for Your fruit of rejoicing.
Lord, help me to take all my thoughts, captive… especially those doubts and imaginings that are prompted by the enemy to steal the heavenly gift of joy that is mine in Christ.
Thank You, Father, that You are worthy of all my praise and that Your joy is a heavenly medicine and spiritual muscle that strengthens my trust and increases my love for You.
May I never cease to rejoice in You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray Amen.
