I laughed. I laughed out loud.
I’m pretty confident God found it humorous too. That’s how I feel every time I say these words to the Living God,
“Sir. You’re right.”
I giggle because I know He’s right. Duh, Chris, He’s God! Of course, He’s right.
I laugh because He makes me laugh.
I laugh because my joy is in the Lord. I don’t need to worry, get anxious or even get frustrated. He finds His delight in us too.
The next time you giggle, with the Lord, imagine Him laughing too.
The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything… Philippians 4:5b-6a, NIV
The Lord is…
Elohim: Creator of the heavens and earth
El Elyon: The highest Sovereign Ruler of the universe
El Roi: The God who sees
The Lord is Near…
Jehovah-Jireh: The Lord Who provides
Jehovah-Rapha: The Lord who heals
Jehovah Nisi: The Lord my Banner
The Lord is Near to Us
Jehovah Mekoddishkem: He Who sanctifies you
Jehovah-Shalom: The Lord is our peace
Jehovah Sabbath: The Lord of Hosts
Jehovah Raah: The Lord, our Shepherd
Rejoice! Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again. Rejoice!
Isn’t laughing out loud in His presence evidence of our joy?
When He laughs with us our joy is complete: “The joy of the Lord is our strength.”
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything. But, in everything by prayer and petition. With thanksgiving present your requests to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:5-8, NIV
May you always be blessed and joyful, laughing with the Lord, today and all your tomorrows combined.
Join the conversation. When was the last time you giggled or laughed with the Lord?
