Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
We rejoice in God, not because of the circumstances we are facing, but because we know who is able to take us through it. When we can praise God, we are saying to him that we trust him and that he has it under control. We rejoice in him always not just when everything is going well, but even when times are not well. The word alway means at all times. Then the word rejoice is repeated again, why? Because the joy of the Lord is our strength.
