It is a brand new day. Maybe, like me, you’re up before the sun, or you may have slept in and it’s mid-morning – or even afternoon. But it’s a day that the Lord has made, so be glad and rejoice in it (Ps 118:24). God has given you a gift today.
It is a day filled with new opportunities and new mercies (Lam. 3:23). Yesterday’s failures are buried. Today is a new slate, bright and clean.
You do not face this day alone; Jesus is present with you (Matt. 28:20).
He is Your Shepherd (Ps. 23:1).
His Father is your Father (Matt. 20:17).
He is your Comfort (2 Cor. 1:3)
Your Rock (Ps 18:2).
Your Strength (Ps 19:14).
Your Shield (Deut. 33:29).
Today keep your heart and mind focused on Him and the worries of your life will seem small because He is so great. Your heavenly Father knows what you need, even before you ask Him (Matt 6:8) and your life is more valuable to Him than anything else in creation (Matt 6:25). He is sufficient for all your needs (Phil 4:19).
He is your Peace (Judg 6:24).
He is your Helper (Ps 54:4)
Your Light (Ps 27:1)
Your Exceeding Joy (Ps 43:4).
He is the God of your Life (Ps 42:8)
Consider how extraordinary it is that the gracious, mighty, sovereign God sang you to sleep last night (Zep. 3:17) and He sent you word this morning of His unfailing love (Ps. 143:8). His is an everlasting (Jer 31:3), unfailing (Psalm 52:8), never-ending (Psalm 107:1) love.
The angels declare that the whole earth is full of the glory of the Lord. (Isaiah 6:3). Keep your eyes fixed on Him (Heb. 12:2), Beloved, all through this day and you will see His glory all around you.
