It doesn’t matter what today holds for you—good news or bad, work or vacation. There is one incontestable, immutable fact—today is one of a kind. Other days to come may look like a repeat of today but when today is gone it is gone. So, get the most out of today. And remember that this day, like every day, was created by the Lord. So, treat it as such and find something to rejoice in it.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
When I roll out of bed—literally—I go to my knees to thank God for today. Then, I recite Psalm 118:24. Nothing magic; nothing complex. Just a reminder that today is a unique day created by the Lord. We need to rejoice and be glad in it—no matter what today brings.
Today may bring some swells or even huge waves. That’s why God is in the boat with us. Remember Jesus quieting the seas after the disciples panicked (Mark 4:35-41). But today is a day that the Lord created and He means every day to be a great day, no matter what life brings us.
And above all today, LISTEN! God is there calling you to a special purpose in life. So, seize the day and that purpose.
