THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE.
WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!
--Psalm 118: 24
Sounds as if we have a choice, doesn’t it? Even sounds as if we did rejoice and be glad, we might be happier, more fulfilled folks, doesn’t it? This clearly puts the choice in our hands, and I wonder why we choose not to be glad, and choose glum most of the time instead.
Life is full of transitions of all kinds and includes many choices of every stripe and color. There is no doubt that we must be adjustable when things don’t go exactly as we planned. Sometimes the way we decry would pay bigger dividends in the long run. The Lord will make the day, but we will be free to use it grumpily and unhappily and blaming Him if we choose. That way we will be disobeying God and giving up any hope of a happier day. Doesn’t sound exactly like a good choice, does it? What gives? Why do we know a good bargain on the store shelves, but are absolutely blind to this good bargain, namely rejoicing and being glad in the day that God has made? Are we both blind and stubborn to what is obviously conduct in our best interest?
Or do we choose to feel put upon, like spoiled children, when things don’t go our way? Might it be way more profitable if we acknowledged that God is in control, that He loves us with an unending love, and that even if things didn’t go quite our way, His was a better way? Or is that interfering too much with human pride? I don’t know. I’m just asking. I know lots of folks who choose to be quarrelsome, unhappy, demanding, etc., which usually ends up in physical infirmity of some kind, and not surprisingly. And I wonder why?? If God made the day, and He did, doesn’t it seem wiser to follow His instruction on how to use it? Namely, rejoicing in it instead of bellyaching because things didn’t go exactly as we chose?
