This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Because this is the day that the Lord has made, it doesn’t matter if it’s a wonderful day or the hardest day of our life; we will rejoice and be glad in it. The reason we’ll rejoice is not because of the outcome, but because of the promise of what’s coming. Oftentimes we like to wait on the results before we start to celebrate, but the context of what David was writing about here was something that he didn’t live to see. He was talking about a day of salvation in which Jesus, the stone that the builders rejected, would become the chief cornerstone. David didn’t live to see that, but he said it because that day is coming. He was rejoicing in advance of its arrival because the One who promised it is faithful to complete it.
Child of God, you don’t have to wait for the mountain to move or the crooked place to be made straight before you can start rejoicing in the joy of your salvation, before you can start celebrating the great things that God has done because He can do exceedingly abundantly above all that you could ever ask, think, or imagine! He is great and greatly to be praised! Rejoice in the Lord, and again, I say, rejoice!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you; giving you His peace. May you walk with the blessed assurance that the guardian angels of heaven are watching you and standing beside you. They will protect you. They will defend you. The Lord of hosts will make your enemy His enemy, and your adversary His adversary. I have power because the kingdom of God has come with power through the authority of Jesus’ name. Live and walk in that word. Amen.
