Inauguration of Each Day

“…Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11

 A synonym for inauguration is “beginning.” The common usage for this word is something like “a celebration of the beginning.”

Every day we live is the first day of the rest of our life. There is a sense in which we experience an “inauguration” with every new day, week, month and New Year we live. Our Lord’s advice to us is to celebrate the beginning of every new day and accept it from Him as a gift – a clean slate with no marks on it.

We cannot change the marks we put on the slate of yesterday. And He told us not to worry about tomorrow because one day’s trouble is enough for one day. If you think about it, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday. He therefore emphasized one day at a time – as in “Give us this day our daily bread.”

I challenge you to celebrate each new day with a private “inauguration” ceremony and ask God to give you the grace and strength to be all you can be for His Glory, one day at a time.
