Fri, 01/12/18, "Day of Praise"
Isaiah 25:9 - It will be said on that day, "Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation."
One of the things that God actually saves us from is ourselves. Praise God for that because everyday is filled with potential frustrations.
But in the face of such potential frustrations, like I've tasted before, where, in the span of one hour, a cashier made a time-consuming mistake with me, a driver dangerously pulled on the road in front of me with no car lights on, and another cashier didn't give me all that I paid for, God says, "Lighten up! 'Be glad and rejoice!'"
And that's a good thing because in the next hour, as it turned out, I pulled on the road with no car lights on and didn't get honked at, and a different cashier gave me a $5 gift card just because they liked my smile. Funny how things work out, isn't it?
So, let's hear it for joy and gladness instead of harumphing and frustration.
Expect God to do great things for you! And TELL HIM that you expect it!!!!
And thank you, God, for always working things out so that joy and gladness can reign with you today and everyday!!!
