It occurred to me, when I was walking back to my car, that this was the day that the LORD had made. Non-believers will find my thought laughable because they think that a day just takes place as the earth rotates with respect to the Sun. But when I looked up the breathtakingly beautiful blue sky and the amazing clouds, I couldn’t but think of their Creator. I also thought of Psalm 118:24:

“This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it”

Psalm 118:24 is an eye-opening statement; every day is God’s creation and free gift to all human beings. No one doubts that we’ll have another day tomorrow. The Sun will rise, and we’ll live that day. But unless God makes a new day and freely gives it to humans, no one will be able to have a day in which we can rejoice and be glad.
