Get excited about the Lord. Get excited about His Word. Get excited about His love. Get excited about His promises. Get excited about His peace. Get excited about His Spirit. Get excited about what He says about you. Get excited about what He does for you. Get excited about the Lord because He is the same yesterday, today and forever. I start my day by rejoicing over the Lord. I start my day with praise. I start my day with a dance in my heart and joy in my entire being. I get excited. I get excited about my day because I know I am going to spend it with the Lord. He is the One I need to be with all day. He is the One who makes my day a better day. He is the One who can get me through any day. I have nothing to worry about and nothing to fear. He wants me to go into the day with faith, hope, joy and the awareness of His presence.
Every day is a great day when we know that God is in every day and He will hold our hand and bless us throughout the day. The enemy wants you and I to start the day thinking about what could go wrong. He wants us to focus on our problems and on our shortcomings. He depicts a dismal picture that he would like for us to hold up high all day so that it is all we see all day. God has a totally different picture of our day. He is the picture frame of our day. He is in the background. He is in the structure. We can find Him in everything good and there will be many good things. God never leaves the picture of our lives. He keeps an eye on everything and He can help us through everything. Let’s rejoice today. Let’s get excited about the day. Not because we have something great scheduled. That is always nice but because God is in our schedule every day. He makes our schedule. He makes our days better. He is the best part of our day and He is in every part of our day!
“Rejoice always” is what the Lord is saying today. He is always excited about our day. He is always excited about spending the day with us so we should be excited as well. There are so many reasons why we shouldn’t get excited about the day. The opposition makes sure that our joy and our peace are taken away from us. He is a party pooper and a joy killer. However, Jesus is the reason for today and we can be glad and rejoice every day. He is the reason for our victory and the reason why we are here. We are in great company. We are going to be a great company all day. When the negative thoughts come at you first thing in the morning, kill them with faith. Declare that today is the day the Lord has made and He will be by your side all day.
Declare that it is going to be a blessed day because the Lord blesses you and you have all you need in Him. You see, focusing on lack and failure depletes our minds of the richness that lies within us. The Holy Spirit is in us and He is all the riches we need. He is powerful and He is wonderful. He is a true treasure. He is hope. He is love. He is peace. He is joy. He is everything that is good, pure and wonderful and He dwells in us. That is such a good reason to be excited. Thank God for the Holy Spirit. Thank God for caring and for giving us His Spirit. Get excited about how the Spirit guides you, teaches you, shows you Jesus and supports you every day. Come what may, you have the Spirit of Jesus in you. Get excited about today. It is another day with the Spirit of the Lord.
My rejoicing in the morning comes in the form of praise, worship and thanksgiving. Sometimes I don’t have the words to express my gratitude and my reverence to the Lord. I marvel at His love. I am so thankful and so honored that He loves me. He loves you, friend. He adores you. That’s exciting isn’t it? It is the best thing ever. People might not like you. People might reject you but the Lord will always, always love you. I get excited about that every day. It helps so much. It makes the start of my day better and it stays with me all day. The adversity tries to remove that truth from my mind as soon as I am done praying. I hit the negativity with words of faith and words of praise. Nothing can separate us from the love of the Lord.
Nothing can stop God from being with us. Romans 8:38-39 are scriptures that I get very excited about. They read, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” What a tremendous promise! Stand on it every day and get excited about your day. It’s going to be a day to remember. It’s going to be a blessed day despite the trials and tribulations. You are in great company all day. Get excited! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
