Every day is a new day,
Every dawn there’s a new sunrise…
Each day we need to begin afresh and with God because the day belongs to God. He made the day for us to live in. The Psalmist says, this is the day that the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it. When we acknowledge that God has made the day and is in control, no matter what, we will be glad and rejoice in it because we know that everything is under control (I hope).
When we come to God it is necessary that we come before Him with fear and trembling because he is Holy and we are not. Yet we can approach his throne of mercy and grace with confidence because it is a throne of Mercy and Grace. It is God who in his mercy and because of his grace had sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for the sins of the world, for my sins, for your sins.
Approaching God has been made Possible through Jesus. We just have to put our faith and trust in Him. It is not easy to put our faith and trust in anyone, but I am sure we can trust someone who declares his love for us by going through the worst possible pain and suffering on our behalf. By His wounds we are healed. He has done so much for us, is there anything that we can do to repay Him? I guess not, yet we can put an effort to live according to his will according to the way he wants us to. Living a Holy and blameless life. Again, this is tough, but again, His grace is sufficient for us. He has promised that he will be with us and just as he has washed away our sins, He will also enable us to overcome all temptations that may come our way.
Fighting the sins and temptations our way does not work. As human beings we have our limits, yet placing them at the feet of Jesus works since he is God and He has no limits.
Therefore, as we begin each day of our life, what better way than to submit ourselves to God and ask Him to enable us to live Holy and blameless lives! And every step of the day we need to be reminded that we are his child and that he is holding our hands. Whether we work, or play, relax or exercise, stay alone or meet with friends, read The Word or watch movies, sing or listen to singing, cooking or eating, through laughter and sorrow, joy or pain, offline or online, every time and everywhere lets be aware of the presence of God and be confident that He knows what is best for us.
God’s love is indeed limitless, may we forever abide in His unfailing love.
Help me Lord to begin each day with You. Help me to lay everything at your feet each day of my life. Help me to empty myself at your feet every day.
