In Romans 12:12, “REJOICING in HOPE” means “CELEBRATING your expectations BEFORE you experience them”
“To EVERYTHING [ALL THINGS RELEVANT or of IMPORTANCE] there is a SEASON [a time CHARACTERIZED by a particular CIRCUMSTANCE or FEATURE] for EVERY MATTER or PURPOSE [to LIVE+to DIE; to SOW, to HARVEST+to REAP; to LET DIE OF+to HEAL; to BREAK DOWN+to BUILD UP; to be SAD+to be JOYFUL; to MOURN+to REJOICE; to REBUKE+to EDIFY; to EMBRACE+to DISTANCE FROM; to GAIN+to LOOSE; to HOLD ON TO+to LET GO; to be SILENT+to SPEAK; to LOVE+to HATE; to be at WAR+to be at PEACE] under Heaven” -Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 [CONDENSED+EDITED]
the mere fact that you’re ALIVE PROVES that the devil is a LIAR!
“This is the day which the Lord has brought about; we WILL REJOICE and be GLAD in it.” Psalm 118:24 [AMP]
this is another day that the Lord has made & I will be glad & rejoice in it!! however this is also another reminder that we are all on borrowed time, saved only by the merciful grace of God… no day is guaranteed… live, love & do His will… God bless you all!
