The Treasury Project – Psalm 118:24

by | Sat, Feb 12 2022

Psalm 118:24
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Mandy shares her reflections on this verse…

Yeah, but what if it’s been a lousy day? What if you’re going through some really dark times and every day you wake up you feel rotten, everything that can go wrong has gone wrong and you’re lonely, sad and even a bit angry about the situation you’re stuck in? What about those days?

Can I just say…I don’t like those questions very much! I’ve had a lot of lousy days and the very last thing on my mind is to rejoice over the fact that God made such a day for me to experience. Those days are hard, and rejoicing in God is even harder.

Here’s the thing though, if we can learn to rejoice in the Lord through the manic, painful and devastating days, trusting Him becomes our default response. A default response on dark days means turning toward God, lifting our hands and saying, “Yet will I trust You, Lord!” Our responses to the circumstances become even more godly, and our testimony becomes stronger.

Who gets the honour in such situations? God does. Don’t ever forget that every day, no matter what it looks or feels like, is a gift from God, it’s another opportunity to honour and respect God, and an opportunity to demonstrate the reality of a relationship with God, to those who don’t have one. Rejoice in yet another opportunity to worship God, even when you don’t want to.

Thank you again for joining with others across Australia in learning and meditating on Scripture through The Treasury Project.

We trust God will bless you as you commit His Word to your memory and allow it to penetrate deep into your heart.
