This Sunday’s sermon at The Donelson Fellowship is from Psalm 118:24: This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. If you live in Nashville or you’re going to be in town please join us at 8:45 or 10:15. Here’s an excerpt from the message:
Psalm 118:24 tells us that God is in the day-making business. The Ancient of Days is the Manufacturer of Days. He has a vast, continually-running conveyor belt stretched from the sun to the earth and from heaven to this world. One new day rolls off God’s assembly line every twenty-four hours, right on schedule, each one unique.
This verse reminds us that God’s compassions never fail; they are new every morning, for great is His faithfulness. Goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives; and as our days may demand shall our strength ever be.
Day by day the promise reads,
Daily strength for daily needs.
It’s the happy privilege of the Christian to rise from bed each day with the knowledge that from the workbench of God’s wisdom comes an endless succession of sunrises and sunsets, all of them individually crafted and each one packaged with grace and wrapped in love.
This is the day the Lord hath made;
He calls the hours His own;
Let Heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.
