How to Keep Every Day the Best Day

We all talk about good days and bad days. It seems to be expected. But is it?

 

Psalm 118:24 states: 

 

“This is the day which the Lord has brought about; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

 

That verse is well known, but often, we do not think about it during the hustle and bustle of being busy and possibly preoccupied with the many challenges awaiting us.

 

Consider James 1:17: 

 

“Every good and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all (that gives) light, in (the shining of) Whom there can be no variation (rising or setting) or shadow cast by His turning (as in an eclipse).”

 

What I take from this is that God is the giver of good and perfect gifts. Therefore, we can be assured that every day, hand-made by God, is always good and perfect.

 

So, what happens to the bad days?

 

Days are filled with the goodness of God, but they are handed over to us to steward and to fill to our and God’s satisfaction.

 

Is that possible in a world gone crazy with many things happening outside our control?

 

Yes, I believe it is. A good day is not a day when everything runs smoothly. It is a day filled with the unbroken knowledge and perception of God being with us and for us.

 

At the end of such a day, we will feel satisfied.

 

The knowledge of the presence of God will provide us with the following:

A joy encountered in God’s presence and not dependent on circumstances

A peace that passes our logical comprehension because Jesus Himself is the Prince of Peace

The assurance of His protection

Knowing that we are never alone

Security because God fights for us

 

And so much more.

How do we practice God’s presence daily?

 

Here are some tips:

Start your day spending time with God

Do not only read the Bible and pray but listen to what is on God’s agenda

Follow His instructions, He might change your agenda

Take time throughout the day to check in with God

End your day with God
