What Day is This?
In the Word
This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24).
Of the Word
Every day is a gift from God. We have heard it. We have said it. We believe it! We can confidently face each day as a gift because God has made it.
While every day is a gift from God, there are certain days that make us more aware of this — birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, and weddings. These tend to be the days we look forward to and look back on with joy. These are the days when others are likely to celebrate with us and become more aware of the One Who has blessed us.
When we pause and reflect on today, we become more aware of Who God is and who we are through faith in Jesus Christ. We do not cause the sun to rise, but we are able to enjoy the sunshine. We do not make the rains fall, but we can praise the God Who reigns! We do not have to take on the weight of the world, we can trustingly wait to see how God will take care of us in the future as He has in the past. Celebrate today! Celebrate every day knowing, This is the day that the LORD has made;… (Psalm 118:24a).
Walking with my Lord
Lord, help me to celebrate each day as a gift from You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
