Choose to Rejoice!

Thursday, September 30, 2010 (4:20 am)

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Yeshua (Jesus) the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Sukkot is known as "The Feast" in which God commands us to rejoice. As we conclude this feast of rejoicing today, I think it is only fitting that we commit ourselves to a life of joy. "But how?" you say. We need to make a choice — a choice to rejoice! Wow, I’m a poet and didn’t know it, lol! Let's reflect on what the Lord has done for us this year and commit to live above our current circumstances and look ahead toward what He is going to do for us in the future!

As we look to our Lord we recognize that He suffered the most cruel and agnoizing of deaths — yet while facing His death — JOY was set before Him! The author and finisher of our faith looked past the here and now — and was focused on what was coming! Let's do the same.

Despite today's problems, let’s look toward eternity. Eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, the things that God has prepared for those of us who love Him!!
