This Is The Day
“Today is the day the Lord has made we shall rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 I know today is a day some wait for yearly and others dread it. There are some holidays that bring up a mixed bag of emotions for some and that’s okay. Then there are the days we muddle through and wonder where have the days gone.
Today I want to remind you no matter what the day is, just remember what today's scripture says. We are given three instructions in this one verse.
1. Every day is a day God has made.
2. We shall rejoice.
3. Be glad in it. You read that correctly – be glad in it!
Is God really saying I can’t be in my feelings today? You can, but you don’t get to stay there because he told us plainly TODAY is the DAY, I (God) made. I do not feel like rejoicing. I (God) say Rejoice (in Hebrew it means to rejoice, be glad, be merry, be gay, be joyful). I do not feel like being glad. I (God) say be glad ((in Hebrew it means happy, glad, joyous, joyful, pleased, cheerful) in it. Notice he did not say if you feel like rejoicing but you “shall rejoice and be glad.” He repeated himself because as you read rejoice and glad hold very similar meanings. Rejoicing and being glad is not an option but a command. When we can be obedient there is a blessing and revelation waiting on the other side of obedience. So, this is serious business, therefore be about the Father's business for your life.
This is a principle if you were to practice it every day, what would your days, weeks, months, and years look like? Read the scripture one more time in the amplified version. This [day in which God has saved me] is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Be encouraged live every day intentionally and purposefully by acknowledging every day is a gift from the Father, then rejoice and be glad in it no matter what.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome women who have birthed physically, spiritually, and those who fill in the gaps to help all of God's children. You are blessed!
