I used to feel like the days were dragging. I used to feel the weight of the day before the day even started. When something bad would happen to me, I would think to myself “Today is not my day.” This quickly turned into “It’s not my week” and then “It’s not my year.” I thought I wasn’t meant to have good days. Good days were for other people. My days were meant to bite like a vicious mosquito on a sultry night in the middle of the desert. Yes, my life felt like a desert and I was always thirsty for better and refreshing days. Then I found the Lord. Then my life changed. Then my days got better. When I rededicated my life to the Lord about 6 days ago, my days went from nights to bright sunny days and the Lord has kept me in that light ever since. I discovered that the Lord meant what He said in His Word. When He said that today was the day He had made, He meant it. Today is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. The Lord made today for you and me. He made it so we would enjoy it and be glad in it. He made it and He has provided everything we need to be glad during the day and to rejoice in it. Today is the day the Lord has made for you to rejoice and be glad. Today is your day, friend!
Your alarm clock might be telling you that today is going to be a drag. You probably hit it a few times because you don’t like the sound of its negative chatter. God’s alarm is a trumpet and it is sounding victory, triumph and joy. God has a day planned for you. His plan entails joy, peace, love, faith, patience, blessings, overcoming obstacles, and much more. His plan is perfect and it is tailored just for you. Don’t adhere to the negative plan laid out by negative thoughts about the day. Subscribe to God’s plan wholeheartedly. Declare that today is the day the Lord has made and you are going to rejoice and be glad in it. Declare that God has given you the tools to be glad today and to rejoice. Declare that the Lord is the reason for today and you are going to embrace Him by embracing this amazing day. Declare His plan over your life. Declare victory over the enemy. Declare peace over chaos. Declare joy over mourning. Declare that today is your day and God is orchestrating every second of every minute today!
Today is not about your problems and your trials. It’s about your God, His love and His blessings. He loves you so much that He paved the way on the cross for today to be a great day. Let that sink in. Align your thinking with that truth. Today is your day. God made it for you and that’s all there is to it. Things might not go your way. Headaches might arise but the Word of the Lord will prevail when you stay in faith. Know that it is going to get better. Start off the day with resounding praise to the Lord as a thank-you for this great day. Stay in gratitude mode all day even when things are not going well. Your positive attitude will make holes into the negativity and the Lord will reverse all your bad situations. Claim the day first thing in the morning and reclaim it in Jesus’ name when things get out of control. Surely goodness and mercy are going to follow you where you go today. Stay on that positive wavelength. Expect God’s best. Expect to have a “God day.” God created the day and He knows everything about it. Rely on Him all day long. Stay in faith, stay in peace. Today is your day. God has so much in store for you. Stay encouraged!
