Today is the day that the Lord has made and I shall rejoice in it. After all, that is the bible, right? But how do you rejoice when your life is in shambles and you don’t know where to turn? Scripture!!! The Bible declares that David encouraged himself in the Lord. Sometimes you have to do something that I call self talk. What is self talk? That’s when you talk to yourself with the scriptures. For instance Jeremiah 29:11 says to me: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil (KJV).
That in itself is enough to shout about don’t you think? I mean think about it…God knows me personally. He knows my mess ups and my slip ups. He knows my heart and my love for him. He knows my shortcomings and yet he still has a success plan for me. That’s enough to be enthusiastic about. So in spite of all that’s going on in your life, begin to declare that it’s a happy day because today you can start again. The Bible also declares that we are given brand new mercies each day. That can be found in the book of Lamentations 3:23. I am so very grateful that God does not treat me as my sins deserve (Psalm 103:10). I give God praise for another day to come before HIS throne of grace. It gives me another chance to try again. Yes it’s a happy day regardless and I am enthusiastic about it.
