"THIS IS THE DAY"

What heights of spiritual inspiration must have been reached by the Psalmist when he could declare with such confidence (118:24), "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

Consider the abundance of spiritual truth which is contained in those brief phrases. First, there is the clear recognition that today is the day of God. Even some of the inspired prophets seldom saw beyond the promise (Mal. 4:1), "Behold, the day cometh," or, "In that day." The Psalmist, however, recognized that the day of God is now, this very day. It is "the day which the Lord hath made." Not a revolution of the earth—a cycle of matter—caused this day to be. Furthermore, there is no demand that in it we must serve matter in any of its manifestations. One's activity for this day is set forth in the simple declaration, "We will rejoice and be glad in it."
