This Is The Day

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 NIV

Many times I have quoted this Psalm; In fact, I’ve even sung the song that is made up solely of this one verse.  One day I sat down and really contemplated those words.  First of all, if this is the day that the Lord has made, then that means…I don’t have to.  I’m not in charge of the day so whether, it will be a good day or a bad day, how it ends up is entirely
up to me.  This is the day that the Lord has made, not me! On this day there are no regrets about the past, nor fear or anxiety about the future.  There is only this day, this moment, which the Lord has made…so I can rejoice and be glad.

God made this day just for you.  He knows what you are going to face.  Now, look for God all day.  Seeing God’s hand and recognizing His activity in and around you gives you reason to BE GLAD AND REJOICE IN IT every day.  Take time to “see” what God has for you today.
