It is Never Too Late to Have a Good Day

Have you experienced a day so fraught with trying people, incidents, or even personal mistakes that you found yourself wishing it was over?

You might say to yourself, “If I can just make it to tomorrow…” or “Will this day never end?” I have certainly chalked some rare days up as total losses—void of any meaningful offerings during their 24 hour span (most likely because my attitude and mind had developed a blind spot to anything positive).

However, the Bible provides us with clear instruction to rejoice and be glad in every day that the Lord has made (Psalm 118:24 ). So, how can we genuinely rejoice even on those seemingly irredeemable days? The scriptures tell us how, if we will take them to heart and commit to the truths they contain:

  • First, accept the fact that one day is at its foundation as good as another simply because the Lord Himself made it (Ecclesiastes 7:14).
  • Commit to blessing the Lord every day because He is worthy of praise (Psalm 145:2).
  • Take to heart the counsel of 1 Peter 3:10“The one who desires life, to love and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil …”
  • Ask the Lord to enable you to hear His loving kindness every morning (Psalm 143:8).
  • Never forget to make the most of the good opportunities that come our way everyday because the days are full of evil influences (Ephesians 5:16).
  • Understand that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8); therefore, He is present with us each and every day and we can count on Him without fail.
  • Be encouraged because Psalm 68:19 proclaims, “Blessed is the Lord who DAILY loads us with benefits.”
