The word Lord represents LAW. Certain laws permeate and control the UNIVERSAL order of things. The most talked about law is the LAW OF ATTRACTION. However, there are many many more laws in operation. In the SCRIPTure mentioned above, an instruction or law is given on what TO DO, at the start of each day. There are actually 2 instructions; REJOICE and BE GLAD.
RE at the beginning of a word means AGAIN. So, the word JOICE comes from the word JOY. Together, from the origins of the word, REJOICE means to EXPERIENCE JOY. So, EACH DAY, the LAW is to first and foremost, experience JOY, AGAIN, or RENEW YOUR JOY!
The next step is to BE GLAD. Throughout scripture, we see the word BE. Be is a compelling word that at its origin means, to become - to bring forth - cause to grow. The word GLAD at its origin means, bright - joyous - smooth. So, our other instruction each day is to CREATE JOY AGAIN TODAY! Then, BE A BRIGHT LIGHT in a smooth manner. Why? Because doing so will help others to feel joyous and empower them to be a bright light as well.
In another story, the enemy was having a conversation with THE LORD in the Bible, and was asked, "Whence cometh thou?" He replied, "Going to and fro SEEKING whom I may devour." So, if the enemy is going to and fro seeking whom he may devour, we MUST guard our spirit with JOY & GLADNESS.
As the older people used to say, "DON'T LET THE DEVIL STEAL YOUR JOY!"
YOUR joy and gladness are your weapons against the tricks and schemes of the enemy within and without.
Lastly, the instruction says to be glad IN IT. Meaning to FOCUS on RIGHT NOW. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow never comes. So, FOCUS IN TODAY'S energy. Focus IN your present moment because your present moment is all you have.
1. RENEW YOUR JOY TODAY & EVERY DAY
(2.) BE GLAD NOW!
(3.) FOCUS ON RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT IS ALL YOU HAVE.
In conclusion, DON'T LET YESTERDAY'S SORROW STEAL TODAY'S HAPPINESS. More joy and happiness brings more joy and happiness. So, focus on your joy!
