“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Yes, right now. Even this early, as the day is beginning, rejoice in it. Even as the sun has just begun to peek over the horizon and the birds are beginning their morning melody, rejoice. Even if you stand at the start of this day, not knowing what will happen, or how it will end, rejoice!
The Father has seen fit to bless us with the gift of today, and although we may not know the how’s and what’s that will come our way, or the answer to everything we will face, our Heavenly Father does, and the call to rejoice in this new day is a call to trust Him with everything that follows.
The circumstances of the varied days we face may change, but our God is immutable in character and promise (Psalm 33:11; Hebrews 6:17-18) and it is His Holy Word that declares, “The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me . . .” (Psalm 138:8). Therefore, my hope rests in the Lord and what He is doing in me and through me this day. My rejoicing is based on God, and not on the usual markers of a good or bad day.
So, rejoice, my friend. Let yourself experience the release, the peace, and the welcoming newness of this day. It may not be perfect in our eyes, but then again, we don’t see things as the Father does, so we walk forward into today, holding on to His hand and with His promises in our hearts, we are choosing to trust Him with the outcome.
Oh, Lord, I really don’t know what’s going to happen with this day or what it will altogether look like, but I bless Your name, and I am thankful for the gift and the grace of this new day. Even if it hasn’t started the way I had envisioned or hoped for, I am claiming the start of this new day to be the seat of all that You have in store for me. Not what the circumstances say, or what people may say, but what You have said and declared over this day. Therefore, I am rejoicing in it!
