“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Every day when the sun rises, God gives us a measure of His Glory. He gives us a new day to renew our faith and grow closer to Him. He gives us time to share with others the need for Jesus in their lives. It is up to us to look pass our immediate circumstances and rejoice in the day.
God also calls us to proclaim the message of salvation, of comfort, and of hope. To rejoice is to let others know and hear of our great God who has fulfilled His promise of a Savior.
We don’t rejoice because there are hardships. We rejoice because there is Jesus seeing us through. We rejoice because Jesus takes the hurt and builds us up through it. We rejoice in the Lord who we belong to.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4
Our choice to rejoice is determined by our mindset, not our circumstances. We can start the day in a foul mood due to our mindset, or start the day in a joyous mood understanding the glorious blessings of the Lord.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
We as Christians should always rejoice in the wonderful workings and blessings of our eternal God and Savior.
This is the day, This is the day, That the Lord has made, That the Lord has madeI will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it.This is the day that Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made.
THIS IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE
This is the day, This is the day,

I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day that Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made.
