The simple truth of “this is the day that the Lord has made” has been ignored by so many Christians. If you learn how to live by this powerful truth, your life can be totally transformed. Each day holds awesome treasures from our Heavenly Father for us to lay hold of.
In order to be able to do this, all you need is a big mouth and about 5 minutes of your time each day. Bold faith and a positive attitude are NOT required to get started. You will find that these 2 traits, however, get stronger in your life if you are persistent in following some simple steps.
If you are like me, you are very familiar with this scripture out of Psalms. The problem is that we can get so familiar with a Bible passage that it becomes common to us.
When this happens, we are in danger of ignoring the life-changing power that is available to help make us the over-comers we are supposed to be in Christ.
Recently, I woke up and noticed a vague sense of dread about the upcoming day. There was nothing troublesome scheduled for my day and there was no reason for me to be feeling this way. It then dawned on me that this had been happening to me a lot lately.
I got angry because I had been allowing this feeling to come up frequently and had done nothing about it. A familiar tune to “this is the day that the Lord has made” came up in my spirit and I started singing it.
Immediately I knew that I had to grab the truth in this Scripture and DECLARE that this new day was going to be full of blessings. I slowly began to look forward to the coming day with great expectation. The Lord had made this day and He made it for me to come out smelling sweet.
The first thing I noticed was that the sense of dread had left me. I was now determined to see God’s presence and favor show up that day. This is how we must start each day off to see God’s victory in our lives.
I am not suggesting that if you do this you won’t have any challenges or struggles for the day. I am guaranteeing that as your heart gets established on the truth of this Scripture, you will be prepared for whatever comes your way and will end up standing victorious.
This Is the Day That The Lord Has Made Easy Steps
This is how you can put your big mouth and 5 minutes each day to work for you. Do this any time after you wake up or on the way to work.
1) Open your mouth and loudly speak the words of Psalm 118:24. Repeat these words several times slowly and with meaning. Don’t rush through it.
2) Thank the Lord as you invite Him to show up in specific events or tasks you have to complete for the day.
3) Place a written reminder wherever you need inside your house or in your car.
