This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalm 118:24 (ESV)
This psalm was written during difficult times in the psalmist’s life. His enemies were surrounding him and he cried out in anguish to the Lord. He reminded himself that God was with him no matter what his circumstances were. As he continued to ponder the presence of God with him, he said “this is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” It is the pivotal verse of the Psalm.
The psalm begins and ends with the words “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!” When our hearts are glad in the Lord, He enables us to rise above our problems.
The Lord has given us another day to be thankful for His goodness. Let us praise The Lord for who He is.
