A New Day

"This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24, NLT).

“Another day another dollar” is an old saying which, if said in a discouraging way, speaks of the futile repetition of each day. Does life feel like futile repetition? Does the thought of a new day bring discouragement? Each new day is not meant to discourage, but to inspire and lift you above what has brought despair and clouded your mind. A new day is God's gift to you. He offers you a new perspective and hope. Christ gave His life so you might experience His peace in the midst of suffering and His hope in the midst of despair. Whatever you face His power carries you safely through it. Whatever the world tells you is only what the world tells you. It is not what God tries to impart to your mind and heart. You are not alone. He is with you through each day ahead.

Rise in each new day, and say “He is with me.” Give him a sacrifice of praise that you have been extended His opportunity of another day. Pray. Read His Word. Seek His presence. Lay your heart before Him completely exposed and with nothing held back. Be honest about your feelings and fear of what the day might bring. Give those feelings to Him. Trust Him. This day will be the best when you allow Him to carry you through it. Daily things accomplished in His strength impart greater faith.

Let “another day another hope” be your perspective on this new day. Expect His presence. Expect His help in His Word. Expect His peace which comes as you give Him your heart's struggle. Open your heart and mind. It is His new day, and whatever it brings, you will receive all that you need. Rejoice that He is with you. You have a new day, a new opportunity, and a new hope.
