This is the day

Each day we are faced with a choice. How are we going to react to the circumstances that come our way. Our choices are expecting the worst or accepting what comes our way knowing God is there in all of it.
Psalm 118:1–29 ESV
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! Let Israel say, “His steadfast love endures forever.” Let the house of Aaron say, “His steadfast love endures forever.” Let those who fear the Lord say, “His steadfast love endures forever.” Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. All nations surrounded me; in the name of the Lord I cut them off! They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side; in the name of the Lord I cut them off! They surrounded me like bees; they went out like a fire among thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them off! I was pushed hard, so that I was falling, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. Glad songs of salvation are in the tents of the righteous: “The right hand of the Lord does valiantly, the right hand of the Lord exalts, the right hand of the Lord does valiantly!” I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the Lord. The Lord has disciplined me severely, but he has not given me over to death. Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it. I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Save us, we pray, O Lord! O Lord, we pray, give us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! We bless you from the house of the Lord. The Lord is God, and he has made his light to shine upon us. Bind the festal sacrifice with cords, up to the horns of the altar! You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you. Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
psalm 118:24
Psalm 118:24 ESV
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
was written for or by King David. After God delivered him and his army from his enemies.
This psalm was sung by the Israelites on their journey to jerusalem for the passover feast.
Jesus sang it on his way to Calvary.

This is the day

5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

I want to go over the word day .
First and foremost it is the opposite of night. a classical biblical theme ( light and darkness)
This doesn't say this is yesterday or this is tomorrow. today is the day .the author is saying this is the day. God gave them the victory over their enemies

That the Lord Has made

16 And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.
46 So he came again to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine
Made is a past tense word of make.
so the text doesn't say God will make. HE made the day.
So there is a plan afoot .
All through the bible God had a plan in place for mankind.
Rejoice!!!!!

16 Rejoice always

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice

23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy

Be glad in it
31  Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
