This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. (Ps 118:24) So what do you do when you have a bad day? Some days just start out hard. How do you rejoice then? You pull yourself up by the bootstraps and will yourself to.
We will rejoice and be glad. It’s an act of determination. And yes, you can do it. You attitude is completely in your control. Whatever is falling apart around you may be frustrating, but God is still God. He is still glorious and wonderful. And when you praise Him, your spirit will be lifted. When you put the frustrating issues in His hands, you allow Him to work for you to do what you can’t.
The day isn’t joyful because something good happened to make it joyful, it’s good because God is God and He gave you the day as a gift. No matter how bad your day has become, it’s still a gift. The alternative is to agree with the enemy that the day is bad and choose to not rejoice. Agreeing with the enemy about anything is a bad idea.
No matter how bad it is, make the decision to rejoice and thank God. Once you do, you’ll find all the reasons why you need to be thankful. You open yourself to more blessing when you do.
