THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
REMEMBER WHAT GOD HAS DONE AND STIR UP THE JOY IN YOUR HEART
Anything can become routine if we let it. Anything can feel mundane after a while.
Not long ago, I heard about a story about a professional baseball player. He has been in the big leagues about fifteen years. His life seems so EXCITING, FAR from routine, far from ordinary. He said, “No, it’s not what you think. We travel all the time. We’re always on the road, in hotels, eating out and away from our family.”
The truth is that I’m sure he was EXCITED about it all when he first started. There are probably things in YOUR life that you were once EXCITED about. When God opened the door and gave you that new JOB, that PROMOTION, you were so EXCITED. You called your friends. You knew it was God’s FAVOR. Well, don’t let the PASSION wear off just because you’ve had it five YEARS! When you met that person and fell in LOVE you were on cloud nine. You knew it was God’s GOODNESS. Do NOT take that for granted. REMEMBER what God has DONE! Stir up the JOY in your heart. Stir up PRAISE. Thank Him for His FAITHFULNESS and let your attitude of GRATITUDE pave the way to live the life of BLESSING HE has for you!
“Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered…”
Psalm 105:5, ESV
