Make a Decision to be Excited Every Day

         I make a point of trying to be excited about each day that God gives me. The Psalmist David said this, "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." (Psalm 118:24) The "we will" says it all. David made a decision that produced the feelings he wanted rather than waiting to see how he felt. For years I got up each day and waited to see how I felt, then I let those feelings dictate the course of my day.  Now, I set my mind in the right direction and make decisions that I know will produce emotions that I will enjoy.

    Most of our days re rather ordinary. We all have moments in life that are amazing, but a lot of life is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and back to Monday all over again. Recently I stood in front of 225,000 people in Zimbabwe preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and teaching the Word of God. It was my birthday, and 225,000 people sang "Happy Birthday" to me. Yesterday I went to Target to buy new kitchen rugs and then to the grocery store, but I can honestly say I enjoyed Zimbabwe and the grocery store equally. Zimbabwe was a once in a lifetime event that was exciting, and one I will never forget, but having another day to enjoy God is also exciting, even if the day is spent doing errands. 

    Everything we do is sacred if we do it unto the Lord and we believe He is with us. Ask yourself right now if you truly believe God is with you. If your answer is yes, just think about how amazing that is, and my guess is that your enjoyment will increase immediately.
