Psalm 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Sometimes, things seem so rough until it’s difficult to find gladness. It’s during these times we have to be glad by faith.

Just like anything else we don’t have, gladness is something we can obtain by faith. We literally have to open our mouths and declare, “God, I thank you for and I believe that I received gladness.” We may have to say this several times throughout the day. Eventually, God will replace negative thoughts about situations we’re experiencing with thoughts of gladness. The situation has not changed, but our perspective has changed.

Don’t go through the day feeling sorry for yourselves or with a negative attitude. Choose to be glad in the day the Lord has made.
