Every day is a gift just waiting to be unwrapped

Psalms 118:24: “This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Every day is a gift just waiting to be unwrapped. How appreciative are you of the gift God gave you? How excited are you to find out what his gift contains? Our answers reveal a great deal about who we are. David declared, “We will rejoice and be glad in it.” There is no reason why the people of God should be discouraged and depressed. Jesus is on the throne, and God’s word is still true as it ever was. Let’s just believe it and act like we believe it.

This is God’s day. You may be going through some rough times, but God is there. Ask him to help you overcome. (We have not because we ask not). He wants you to enjoy the gift he gave you, he wants you to enjoy life. Today is a gift just for you. There is so much for which to be thankful; let us show God how much we appreciate his gifts by rejoicing all the time but especially when times are rough. By rejoicing when we don’t feel like it, we are stilling the enemy in his tracks (Psalms 8:2). When you think of all God does, is doing and is going to do,  is this too much to ask? Certainly not! Well, let’s just praise the Lord, enjoy every day and be a blessing where ever we go.

Father, I thank you that you made this day; I rejoice and am glad in it. I choose to make it the best day of my life. I embrace it with expectation and excitement.
