This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Focusing on God can help you wake `up’!
Psalm 118 is a ‘Messianic Psalm’ and this verse is talking about the day when Jesus came into our world. But still, isn’t it true of every day we begin? Motivational speaker Jim Rohn points out that one of the reasons that many people are not doing well is that their outlook on life is wrong. They are simply trying to get through the day.
Instead we should be looking for what we can get out of the day! As you think about this day today, God wants you to recognize that it is His day. He has brought you into it; He has things in store for you today that will bless you and strengthen you. Rejoice in God’s plan for your life today.
As you begin today with the anticipation of God’s involvement with you throughout the day, it will change your whole perspective on life. Life becomes, not drudgery, but anticipation of God at work.
How would your day be different if you woke up thinking: “God made this day. How does He want to use it in my life? How does He want to use me in someone else’s life? What is He going to bring to my mind for prayer about? What challenge will require His intervention? How will I see God at work today? Bring it on!”
