“This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118:24
This is the day.
God has made today. Good, bad, forgettable, whatever we may think about it, God has made it. He has a purpose and a plan for today. It is not just filler between yesterday and the weekend. It is not merely another day to get through while waiting for something we are looking forward to.
God didn’t spend less time planning today. He is no less involved or active in the world today than any other day. His love is no less powerful, His grace is no less amazing, His faithfulness is just as sure and steady. His awesome power is just as incredible and His presence is just as prevalent.
Today is not a waste. We can “rejoice and be glad” in today for the Lord has made it, He has purposed it and given it meaning and direction. It isn’t random or pointless. That which is created has meaning and value.
You are not a waste. God has created you and given you a purpose and more meaning than you can conceive. He has made you in His own image and has worked your salvation.
Go forth in confidence today knowing that “This is the day the Lord has made”, because of that you can “rejoice and be glad in it.”
