A pastor friend tells me it is not mature for one to rejoice that they have been used of the Lord.  His admonition is the the person is still in the equation so to speak and it should only be Christ.  I think he is wrong. For to me to be used of Christ in serving other people, in people being pointed to Christ through ministry and friendship is one of the joys of following Christ.

My question is how to put together a search string that would identify verses being of used of the Lord resulted in the person used rejoicing.  Peter and John rejoiced  Acts 5:41 "rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name."

Any help would be appreciated.

Right click "rejoicing" and look for Information categories that could apply e.g. I scroll below Events and select Manner Propositional Outline, then select a Search on the other side.

One idea is sense searching (lots of results):

<Sense to rejoice (feeling)> WITHIN 8 WORDS (<Person God> OR <Person Jesus> OR <Sense to be considered worthy>)

Dave Hooton:

Looking at sense search results provided some more Propositional Outlines

({Section <PropositionalOutline = Manner>} OR {Section <PropositionalOutline = Contrast>} OR {Section <PropositionalOutline = Action>} OR {Section <PropositionalOutline = Experience>}) INTERSECTS <Sense to rejoice (feeling)>
