I have had various Scripture verses jump out at me over the past few years that I knew were meant to serve a purpose for a particular situation in my life at the time.
The most recent one has been “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
I have woken up with this verse on my mind often lately and, paired with “Give us this day our daily bread” as well as a few others, I am very aware of the reason for these Scriptures to be my new resting place.
You see, try as I might to take it a day at a time, I have a dreadful tendency to think ahead…worry ahead…fret about the future…
Funds are tight. Vehicles need repair. Health takes a nosedive. Appliances are not getting any younger. Grocery budget slashed yet again~how low can it go. Hair not going to cut itself.
Present income streams a little shaky. Hopeful new income streams not working out.
So God has to remind me again and again, fresh and new each morning:
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22,23
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow…” Matthew 6:34
Daily rejoicing. Daily bread. Daily mercies. Daily peace.
Daily prayer. Daily trust.
IT’S APPARENTLY A DAILY THING.
God has given us all hands ~ hands to serve. Let’s use them to serve Him well.
