“This is the day the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24
Every day we awake is a gift from God. He watched over us during the night, woke us up this morning, granting each one of us a new day. The Psalmist is making a declaration! A declaration of truth and of faith that God is creator of each new day.
This Psalm is also about making a choice! Will you choose to rejoice because of this gift and will you rejoice in this day. Everything we do is about making a choice. We can choose to rejoice and be happy, or choose not to rejoice and allow worldly circumstances to create our day!
Friends, God created each new day for us as an adventure! Every day is a journey with new discoveries in the Lord as we trust Him to “direct our steps!” Today, by faith, choose “joy” for “the joy of the Lord is our strength” on our individual journeys. Father God has great plans for our lives. Living in misery doubting God delays the manifestation of Father God’s plans in our lives. Don’t let worldly circumstances keep you from receiving all God has for you!

Thank you Herry. I receive those words of encouragement. 😊👣
Thanks Georgetta for the reminder joy is a choice. I have been listening to Mercy Me sing, Even If for the last few days, just that song , four to six to eight times a day and I am filled with joy. When I am not listening to Mercy Me I am singing, All MY Hope is in Jesus, thank God my yesterday gone, all my sins are forgiven …Filling my heart with joy with each word. The devil hates it when we become even a little joyful so it’s been a battle during this time. I ‘ve cried and cried as the truth of God’s Word has soaks my face and in the middle of it, the battle goes on. So ready your post along with a few others has helped me to continue to chose joy. Blessings sister.

I will lift your name up in prayer to Father God to restore your soul. I love Psalms 23:4 “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Father is sending you messages of hope through His children, that He hears you and will work it ALL out for you. Blessings to you my Sister. Remember you are greatly loved no matter what.!❤👣
