This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24 NKJV
Our God is the God of eternity, and we are creatures of time. Apostle Peter says these things, “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” Adam lived total of 930 years and he died, this means he was 70 years short to see a day of the Lord. (2 Peter 3:8, Genesis 5:5)
All things that happen to us are bound in time, that's why there are stages of development of human being that changes through time. The Psalmist David says, “Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.” This is important to understand that we haven't been given much time to live on this earth. That’s why is so dangerous to say I will do this and this tomorrow while you can do that particular thing today. (Psalm 90:10)
Then the Psalmist continues by saying in verse 12, “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” We need wisdom of God every day; some people don't have this wisdom that's why they don't enjoy the life that God has given them. Some of you have been given love by God, He has given people who love you; but you don't appreciate them because you think you deserve more or better. There are parents who don't enjoy the love of their children, couples who don't enjoy each other; and some young men and women who keep on rejecting love every time it comes in their way.
This morning, I want to encourage you to live for today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. The Bible says today is the day of salvation, 2 Corinthians 6:2. Today is the day of deliverance, today is the day for you to love and enjoy the love that God has given you free in your life. Today is the day that you need to enjoy life and be thankful for every good and perfect gift that you have been given from above. (James 1:17)
If God has been speaking to you to do some things, or do some changes in your life. Then today is the day, maybe you have been saying I will do them tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. I'm here to tell you that there is enough anointing in the spiritual realm to help you today. If you will take a step of faith and just do them. You will see the mighty hand of God helping you all the way.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to do all I'm supposed to do today. Give me strength to act upon the faith that You have given me in Christ Jesus and know that everything will work together for my own good. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
