Let us start the day with our focus in the right place. The “Word of God”.
Psalm 118:24 “This is the day which the LORD hath made, we will rejoice and be glad it it”.
Rejoicing in a new day doesn’t always happen instantly, there are times when mornings go wrong and the effect continues to gain momentum for the rest of the day. I am sure we all have had such days !!!. It is during these times that we must continue to press on, we know that ALL things work together for good, (Romans 8:28).
Every day we are in a battle field, a victory won, or a total defeat. It depends on us, are we feeding the flesh? or are we walking in the Spirit?. Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.(Galatians 5:16.).
Our challenge is not to take our focus of God and place in our circumstances. Not always easy, but as we grow stronger in our faith day by day, we learn that “greater in He who is in you, than he who is in the world” (James4:4). But through it all we know that “Jesus will never leave us or forsake us”.
Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice”
Some thoughts for the day ….(Dave Willis)
Jude 24-25K (KJV)
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
