John 4:36 ‘…….so that the sower and the reaper may rejoice together.’
The word rejoice is being so filled with God’s delight, perhaps a space that evades many of us caught up in our busyness. Rejoice is an active choice and starts with giving sincere thanks and gratitude to God. Meditating on the great glory of God in your life and surrounds, the temptation is to focus on what is wrong or seemingly irredeemable. ‘‘But why do we get drawn into the difficulties of this world whether as participants or willing spectators?’’ Isaiah 55:8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. Will shutting out news and sensational celebrity reporting weaken a Christian? Time to focus on real rejoicing. Time to focus on God’s ways. Bless you.
Prayer. Holy Father, please illuminate the paths of your ways. Thank you for the rain in western Cape of South Africa, please bring rain in the dry parts of the world that need it most.
