This is the Day


IMG_3976This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

When we look back through the Bible at the history of God’s dealing with man we see not just words and stories but a collection of days which all are leading us to today. here are just a few highlights which are something of like the Year of the Lord in review (Remember that a single day with Him is like a 1000 years!)

The first day God created man and breathed his own breathe into Him and created woman from man’s rib

The day Noah entered into the ark (And God shut the door)

The day Noah came out of the ark to begin a new world

The day the Lord called Abram and the day He fulfilled His promise and Isaac was born

The day Moses was called at the bush and the day the Red sea parted

The day God gave 10 commandments on the mountain and the day the Jordan opened

The day David defeated Goliath and the day the Temple was dedicated

The day Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego entered the furnace and the night Daniel slept with the lions

The day Mary met the angel Gabriel and the day Jesus was born

The day Jesus multiplied the bread and the day He walked on water

The day Jesus shone like the sun on the mountain and the day He washed His disciples’ feet

The day Jesus was crucified for our sins and the day He rose from the dead

The day Jesus appeared to Mary at the tomb and the day He breathed on the disciples giving the Holy Spirit

The day when Jesus was taken up to heaven and the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came like wind and fire

The day Paul was struck to the ground by the light and the day when John fell at Jesus feet on Patmos

All of these days were “the day the Lord has made”

If we have seen the sun rise this morning then today is again the day the Lord has made. How we value this day will be determined by the words we say and the things we do. The choices we make to give or to keep, to laugh or to cry,  to sacrifice for someone else or to demand our own way will one day matter more to us than we can ever imagine.  Today is again the day the Lord has made. What will we do with His gift of a brand new sunrise?
