“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” Psalms 118:24, NKJV.
The only reason you have breath this morning is that the Lord provided it. The only reason you opened your eyes is that He blessed you to open them.
If you consider that you have just been blessed with life, you will realize how precious life is. When you humbly think out of the thousands of people that didn’t wake up, but you did, you will realize how precious life is and be thankful. Regardless of what you face, the thankfulness of life outweighs your concerns and puts them in their proper place.
Stop and occupy your heart with the blessing of life itself and praise Him. Rejoice, and be glad. No matter what you have, some would immediately trade you for your health, your right mind, your eyesight, your family, your peace in Christ, for every ounce of wealth they have because life weighs in as the greatest blessing.
No matter what you’re going through, as long as you have breath, there is always hope. God has graciously extended to you life today–so He must desire that you live it!
Prayer: Father, I praise You for the blessing of life. You gave me life today, and I will rejoice. I am alive. Therefore, You want me to live! Help me to trust You will handle all of my concerns as You have always done. May I not always be found looking for a blessing, that I forget I’m already blessed. Thank You, Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
