Bible Ballistics: BBs #157 It’s A New Day!!!
Just a little reminder on this Friday, that yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not here yet, but today is all yours. As my dear preacher friend, Bro. Scott says, “Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours”! I can choose to look up, down or around!
I can look up to God and seek His direction:
“Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
I can look down and around at the darkness and evil about me. I can be distracted, discouraged and depressed by all the distress, pressures and chaos that are going on around us. Jeremiah reminds us that even in the throes of judgment and chaos GOD is still at work and He wants to lift us up:
“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.
24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul;
therefore will I hope in him.
25 The Lord is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.
26 It is good that a man should both hope
and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.”
So??? Here’s our shot for today.
“Be still, and know that I am God..” Psalm 46:10a
God’s mercies are new every morning—TODAY IS A NEW DAY!!! Take time today to “Be still”.
God has given YOU a new opportunity to grow,
a new opportunity to do better,
a new opportunity to get it right,
a new opportunity to touch lives
and change YOUR world!!!
What will you do with TODAY?
“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
So, “Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours”!!!
(Thanks Bro. Scott!!!)
