"This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalms 118:24 NKJV
At the dawning of a new day, some people rise and say, “Good morning Lord”, whilst others say, “Good Lord, it’s morning!” From the moment they get up out of bed, the outlook some people have on the day is one of doom and gloom, but as children of Father God, we have good reason to be happy.
Jesus gave His life for us so that we wouldn’t need to die for our sins. If you have asked Him to be Lord of your life, then you are saved, healed and delivered. You have His Word and Holy Spirit to equip you, empower you and lead you, and you are destined to live a life for Him that makes a difference in this world we live in.
Our mission is to “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone” and to “Make disciples of all the nations” (Mark 16:15-18; Matt 28:18-20 NLT), so why wouldn’t we rejoice. We get the amazing opportunity to serve our Father. Today is a new day, with new mercies and new opportunities and you have God the Holy Spirit living inside you Who will never leave you or forsake you. You have it pretty good.
So, let today be a day you rejoice in Him, and celebrate because you have the incredible opportunity of living your life to honour Him. Think about that in all that you put your hand to today.
“I declare that today is the day that the Lord has made; I will choose to rejoice and be glad in it…”
