“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24 NIV)".
There are mornings where you can just sense that this is going to be a good day. It is as if all the cares and the spiritual attacks have been lifted away from you and you can walk so easily in this promise the Lord is speaking of. But for many of us these days seem to be rare ones. Often we see ourselves confronted with problems, opposition, and the issues of our own hearts. These are the days where you know that you are walking on the narrow path. How then can you possibly find joy in all these circumstances when you are so overwhelmed by them?
Let me help you here. Whether you feel good or not, it is a fact that the Lord has made this day and He wants you to be happy! He wants you to be glad and know that He is in control of every day. After all, he is the creator of all good things, right? So it all starts with your perspective towards this day and your attitude towards God. Here is a simple question for you to answer: “Is your glass half full or half empty?” Do you view your situation negatively, or could it be an opportunity to grow, for example in patience, love or obedience? Whatever it might be, chose to learn regardless of how you feel. Believe the Lord and His word. Take every opportunity to grow in the Lord and learn from Him and you will soon realize that your days are filled with joy and gladness.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
