Read: Romans 14:5-10
“One person esteems one day above another; another esteems everyday alike. Let each be fully convinced. In his own mind” (Romans 14:5).
salm 118:24 says, “this is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it”. Ecclesiastes 11: 5-6 (NLT) says “just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God who does all things. Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another, or maybe both”. Jeremiah 10:23 says “O Lord, I now the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. Proverbs 16:1 says, “the preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord”. What do the above scriptures tell us?
Each day you wake up alive, be grateful to God. Count it as significant because God created it to be, and then expect the best from it. You do not know how the day will turn out. It is not yours to understand. What is expected of you is to give yourself fully to it, toiling from morning to evening in whatever tasks your hands have found to do. Make plans for the day but remember that the final outcomes of the plans you make is determined by God, so be sure to commit your plans to Him and keep an open mind.
God’s word is full of wisdom and life transforming insights for daily living. I have learnt to esteem everyday as important to my existence here on earth. I have learnt to esteem everyone that God sends to me as significant to the accomplishment of my assignment on earth. I have learnt not to label any event in my life as a coincidence or happenstance. I have learnt to esteem every experience in my life as working together for my good and a significant part of where God is taking me to. I have learnt that destination is more important than the journey. Ecclesiastes 7:8-9 says, “the end of a thing is better than the beginning”. I am therefore persuaded that everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright now, then it is not the end.
