This is the day

This is the day which the LORD has made;
Let us )rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24 NASB)

This is the day the Lord has made.  Wow, what a statement the psalmist makes.  We need to think about this Psalm each morning when we rise.  We should realize that our creator has given us this day and the opportunities that go along with it!  What is so unfortunate is that many people will miss God.  Many will miss some of the possibilities that each a day brings.  When you miss God, you miss the purpose of the day that He created.  I am convinced that each and every day countless people miss the devine purposes that our creator has for them.  Why do you think this you might ask; it is because sometimes we are so concerned with the messes we have created and it keeps us from recognizing the real purpose that our Lord has for us.  We fail to realize that our God meets our needs each and every day!  We fail to see that He meets our daily needs so it makes it hard for us to rejoice in the day!  Our lack of faith keeps us from being prepared to realize the blessings that each day can bring.  We need to turn from sin and selfishness, and trust the God that created the universe; trust the God that fearfully and wonderfully knit us together in our mothers womb!  After we trust, we need to rejoice…look around, we live in a pretty amazing place.  We have a lot to rejoice about, so rejoice today!  Love God…love people…and rejoice!  I love you all<><!
