Allow me to lead you in a devotion this month. As I so often do, I begin my time with God each morning around a particular scripture.
“This is the Lord’s doing, it’s marvelous in our eyes. This is the day the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad in it.” (Psalm 118:23-24)
One day, my spirit repeated it back to me this way:
This day is the Lord’s doing. You should marvel at it because He made this day specifically for you, and if you truly believe that, you won’t just be glad, you will be “exceedingly glad” and you’ll “rejoice.”
Then the Holy Spirit said to me so clearly, “Exceedingly glad is the way one acts, who believes today is a gift from God.”
As He said it, gladness that I had never experienced before began to sweep over me and I rejoiced, shouted, praised, laughed, and cried, all at the same time, because of His tangible goodness.
He then said, “Your gladness is the confirmation that you believe today is a gift directly to you from me. Now, I desire for you to approach every day this way. When you do, all the strength you need will be in your day.”.
All the love.
All the joy.
All the peace.
All the healing.
All the protection and safety.
All the relationships.
All the resources and finances you need will be there just for you.
So when each day arrives in your life, compliments of your God, it comes as a gift, a perfect gift, a gift of extravagance, from a heart of generosity. God will never give you not enough, just enough or even barely enough. He always gives us “more than enough.” It’s already built into every day. So make a decision to marvel, to rejoice. Say it, “I will be exceedingly glad, each day.” Because when we do, our praise validates and confirms that today is a gift from God.
Thank you for all you sow in BelieversWay and believersway.tv. Missy and I love you. We are all so blessed with rich Word from our God. I believe for great harvest in your life. Oh, how He loves our faithfulness!
