This is the day the LORD has made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24 NKJV

Do you find yourself stressing out at times, feeling too uptight?  There seems to be situations or circumstances that try to suck all the joy and energy out of you. You may be finding it hard to relax and really enjoy life.  In John 16:33 Amplified Version Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”. And Philippians 4:4 Amplified Version says, “Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!.”  In other words you may need to lighten up, stop being so intense.  Give God a chance to work in your life.  Make the decision today to put your whole trust in God, choose to rejoice and be glad in the day that God has given you and enjoy life.
