"This is the day the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24
Every day we awake is a gift from God. He watched over us during the night, woke us up this morning, granting each one of us a new day. The Psalmist is making a declaration! A declaration of truth and of faith that God is creator of each new day.
This Psalm is also about making a choice! Will you choose to rejoice because of this gift and will you rejoice in this day. Everything we do is about making a choice. We can choose to rejoice and be happy, or choose not to rejoice and allow worldly circumstances to create our day!
Friends, God created each new day for us as an adventure! Every day is a journey with new discoveries in the Lord as we trust Him to "direct our steps!" Today, by faith, choose "joy" for "the joy of the Lord is our strength" on our individual journeys. Father God has great plans for our lives. Living in misery doubting God delays the manifestation of Father God's plans in our lives. Don't let worldly circumstances keep you from receiving all God has for you!
