How do you feel this morning? Happy, thankful, rejoicing or sad, troubled, anxious…? The Psalmist said: This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)
‘This is the day’ includes every day. God made this day. He isn’t on holiday. He continually teaches us His way. Put to practice: let’s not delay!
Every day is a gift from God. Max Lucado: Just as a forest uses fire to replenish itself and give birth to new life, God uses the burning embers of our days to grow new and deeper HOPE and FAITH.
Is there anything that you are hoping for – things that a man or a woman cannot accomplish on his or her own strength?
Is there anything that you are putting your faith in – something that no human being can do except our Father God in heaven?
Dear Father God,
Our life on earth is merely a journey. Our destination is not here. Our eternal home is to be with You, Father God!
While we are here, I think we must do both physical and spiritual things to accomplish physical and spiritual results. A baby will never walk if he or she does not take the first step. We will go nowhere if we stay stagnant – be it our spirit, soul or body. Remind us to do whatever is necessary to keep our body healthy and strong; Enable us to see things from Your perspective and think thoughts that are God-honouring; Open our spiritual eyes and empower us to hold fast to Your promises, enjoy Your presence and live out LOVE on this earth every day of our life. Most importantly, draw us closer to You. We want to see You! We want to know You! We want to love You! We want to bless You, worship You, exalt You and glorify You all the days of our lives!
In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray.
