There is a time for deep repentance, a time for war and a time for rejoicing! We have been warring and repenting. Today, let's rejoice and worship! Days of rejoicing are days to reflect on what the Lord has accomplished. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the generations that followed them built altars of remembrance to the Lord for what He had done. Faith rejoices even before it sees the victory!
"You shall rejoice before the Lord your God—you, your son, your daughter ... the orphan, and the widow who are among you—in the place where the Lord your God has chosen to place His name" (Deut. 16:11).
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Throw your hands in the air and joyfully thank the Lord that you know He is hearing your prayers.
- Be specific as you thank Him for answers to the things you've been praying for, even though you haven't seen the answers yet.
- Go and tell somebody else all that you know the Lord is doing. Tell your family, a neighbor, a stranger or tell the world on social media.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I rejoice in You today! All of Your promises are "yes and amen" to me! You are forgiving our sins, healing our nation's breaches and moving us closer to a great awakening each and every day. I can't wait to tell my family, friends, neighbors and the whole rest of the world how awesome You are. I can't wait to see those who have pitted themselves against You begin to turn toward You. In Jesus' precious name, amen.
I decree that the Lord has heard our prayers and supplications and that He is worthy to be praised!
