"This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psa 118:24
Opportunity is a wonderful thing. It is filled with hopes, dreams and possibilities. Whether we realize it or not, we are all always on the look out for opportunity. It gives the ability to accomplish, receive, build, grow, advance and complete. We position ourselves for it, take advantage of it and try to recognize it should it come knocking. Do we, however, recognize its source?
Beloved, each day the Lord wakes us we are given the opportunity to do mighty things. Every day is a blank slate filled with potential. For this reason we ought to be exceedingly glad. God has given us one more chance to enjoy His creation, utilize the gifts He has given, pursue the path He has laid out for us and to please Him. We have an opportunity to "work out our soul salvation." And we have the opportunity to display to others the kindness He constantly shows us.
Let us resolve not to have a bad day but a great day! It is not known how many more any of us have, but we have today. Let us treasure it, exploit it and enjoy it to the glory of Him who made it!
