You can make this day special, or you can make this day regretful, it's all in how you view it (Psalm 118:24). How we start any day can be the difference, and be a picture of who, or what makes our day. When we expect, people, place, and things, to bring happiness we are setting ourselves up for disappointment for sure! We need to see the bigger picture here, and reach far beyond ourselves to our Creator!
The psalmist did just that, he knew who to set his sights on, and that his joy came completely by trusting God for that need! It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man (Psalm 118:8). That is why the excitement in proclaiming, this is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.(Psalm 118:24).
If we set our sights on us, all the happenings around us, we are trusting in man for that Joy.
We need to set our sights on our heavenly home, we need to understand that everything here is temporary. We need to know, that God has something better to offer than what is perishing away. You are special, you are special in His sight, if you know and believe that, why do you make your days any less special? Make that vertical relationship strong, and guess what? The horizontal will work itself out just fine!
Than you will truly understand, why the psalmist was so rejoicing, so happy, and so willing to make his day special. Who makes the day, is the difference a day could make! Rejoice in the Lord today, if you do not know Him it is not too late.
Just say a simple prayer, Lord You know I am empty, I have done things my way, it has brought me nothing but confusion, a life of struggle, looking for happiness in all the wrong people and places, and things,.Yes I am a sinner who has rejected You, now I turn my life over, take it and transform me as only You can, Jesus take me I am Yours, I am confessing with my mouth and believing in my heart, In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
