Haydon talks about why we should rejoice in the Lord & what that requires in every season. God has given us the power to choose – which makes us truly free. Our choice to reciprocate the love of a good Father can be costly, but it glorifies God. This is an exhortation to boast in His goodness, & remain thankful for that fact that we are deeply loved, & get to enjoy a relationship with Him rather than observe a set of rules.
