This is the Day!

May 2, 2013

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24 (ESV)

Come midweek, things start to drag. Waking up is tougher. Work is stacking up. You know there is a stack of stuff for you to attend to when you arrive at work. E-mails, phone messages, in-box, out-box, corrections, to-do lists – all piling up. That may be how you feel today.

There is something to be happy about. The LORD has created this day. He has made this day for new things. This is a chance for a fresh start, a new beginning. Today is not yesterday, nor is it tomorrow. It is uniquely, and specifically, today.

God asks one thing from each of us regarding today – he wants us to rejoice and be glad with it. He is not looking for artificial, trumped-up happiness. He just asks we are thankful and glad for the day itself. So as you enter this new day, a special day created for its own place and time, lift up thanks and praise to God for creating it. Rejoice in God’s creation and you will begin to find gladness in it. Do not let yesterday steal from today, and do not lend today to tomorrow. Rejoice and be glad!
