Guaranteed–God Made The Day

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

Have you considered –I mean really thought about it–that God makes all our days. He designs each sunrise, and never is today’s the same as that of yesterday, nor has ever blazed a sunset, a mere replica of its precursor. There are no copies, no counterfeits, no images.

Each spectacular rising and setting is created by God. Through His fingers trickle the rivers and the seas, and at His voice, brown and green and purple mountains leap the horizon. His mighty Arm scoops out the canyons and marks well the Pacific sands. With undiminished strength His blazing finger describes a jag of lightening, and darkens the sky with marks of grey and black and golden.

He opens each bud, swims every duck, sets free the moment, greens the sapling and roars every lion. He creates our days.

Who else could create a day? No one. No one else beside our God, Jehovah, Jesus Christ. Could any dare draw the curtain of a new dawn, or fashion the deep and rare midnight. None, I say.

This is the day–happy or sad–fulfilling or lonely–stormy or placid–rich or poor–successful or buried at the bottom–of anguish or unmitigated joy–This is the day which the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!

    Indeed, God is the maker of all our days. I don’t know how anybody could really look at all the beauties of nature and not believe that there is a God. I love the picture you posted for today too.

    Good afternoon, Carol.

    Agreed: Nature shouts: God!

    The picture was taken in Colorado about this time last year. It was beautiful there.

    Santa Maria, soon…..
