“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 God made the day and the night. Each day has a name. Each day has its own special significance when viewed from the perspective of eternity. From eternity God made this day. He brought His creation into time and allowed me to engage the moments and gain the experiences awaiting me. It is not to be taken for granted because I am in need of His mercies and grace in order to effectively use the time allotted me. If I know this, I am appreciative of the freshness of His love for me today. “This is the day that the Lord took special attention in making.” It is now lifted from the pages of eternity to illustrate God’s purposes and intents within time. It is not just another day, but this day is the day! It was God’s intention for me to be alive and to see this day. Before it becomes too common, I will rejoice.  I will begin this day thinking about the gift of life and the gift of time and take the opportunity to rejoice in it.

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. (23)They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness”. Lamentations 3:22-23 God gives us a new day after having learned from the experiences of yesterday, but not carrying the baggage of the many mistakes we had made. The freshness of today is as if we were starting all over again. We awaken to springtime after merely one day of the winter’s cold. His mercies are extended to us at the beginning of each new day, not holding any repented failures to our charge. His grace is before us enabling us to walk down a different path. We learn that Jesus is committed in showing us the way to the Father. Therefore if we are to learn any truth, it must come through fully following Him. We grow in our appreciation and gratitude for all has done for us. We could have died confused not knowing what to do or where to go. We were pulled out of the quicksand of yesterday and placed on solid ground of today. We are on an even footing and enabled to see where we may have made a wrong turn. Now…

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” (Romans 12:1) Reasonable service requires both reason and service from the individual. When deep and deliberate thought is combined with purposeful action, the result is an impact made upon the world around you. You are used by God in a mighty way because you have allowed Him to make you useful for the work that He created. Many attempt to serve without reason, and some are too preoccupied with reason to be of any service. But His reason positions you for every part of your being to be fully engaged in what you were born to do. God does not require you to figure out what your purpose is in life because your “figuring” will most likely lead to a path of endless confusion. The grandest ideas that come to mind cannot compare to the empowerment that He affords those who are willing to fully submit to Him. To present your body to God is to say to Him that you are not your own, but the purchased price of your redemption warrants…
