Today is Your Best Day
Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor (1 Chronicles 16:29)
If you are in Jesus Christ and your heart is committed to God’s plan for your life, it means that today is your best day. It’s not your best day because you feel like it is or because you pretend that it is. It’s not your best day because everything is going perfectly or because you are living in ideal circumstances. It’s not your best day because you are in optimum health or because everything is going your way.
Today is your best day because you can grow a little more in your faith, a little more in your maturity, and a little more in your intimacy with Jesus. Today you can take another step higher as you are taken from glory to glory, take another step deeper as you grow in God’s love, take another step farther as you obediently walk in God’s will. Today is your best day because it has brought you one day closer to the coming of the Lord.
You may be going through a very difficult time today, but that does not mean this is your worst day. God can use the difficulty to produce precious things within you that you will treasure in days to come. There may be pressure in your day, but God uses pressure to form diamonds. There may be a fiery trial in your day, but God uses fire to purify gold. There may be an irritant in your day, but God uses irritants to create pearls. If you are in need of comfort today, God will comfort you, and the comfort you receive today will help you comfort someone in need tomorrow.
God, be with me, give me comfort, and continue to work all things together for good so Jesus’ love will be seen through me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
