This is the Day the Lord Has Made!

This is the Day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. — Psalm 118:24

Morning Glory

Morning Glory

What is the first thing you do in the morning when your legs swing from the mattress and your feet hit the floor? If you’re anything like me you have a routine–the methodical dance of the ordinary–repeated day after day after day, ad infinitum.

But I wonder, how many of us take even a brief moment to look up, stretch our arms out wide, and cry out to the God of the Universe:

This is the Day That the Lord Has Made,  I Will Rejoice and Be Glad in It!

Don’t mistake this powerful verse as an expression of  feelings It’s not an emotional appeal or an indication of your level of happiness–it is rather, a call to action! Our feelings and emotions can deceive us and often do. Psalm 118:24 is a spiritual (not of the flesh) acknowledgement that no matter what the day brings, we can be assured that it is the Lord’s Day and because He made it, it is therefore good, very, very good.

We are, after all, royalty. We are children of the King of Kings and therefore have absolute assurance of comfort and hope, unlike the enemies of God (or those that do not belong to Him).

It is a fact that if we start our day with the Lord, we are squarely in his Will and our spirit is in a right place.

So I encourage you to rejoice at each new morning and be glad for the Day our Lord has made.

Maranatha! (Oh, Lord Come!)
