(Psalm 74:16 NIV- The day is YOURS, and YOURS also the night; YOU established the sun and moon.)
LORD, this very day and this very night is YOURS. … What a beautiful and hope-filled truth for us to reflect upon and take to heart. Our days and our nights belong to GOD. HE established the earth and everything in it. So, we too belong to HIM and every breath we take and every beat of our hearts are all ordained and administered at HIS hand and by the sound of HIS voice. When GOD speaks, supernatural, miraculous, life-changing, LIFE-giving things take place. The sun, the moon, and the stars without question are all unparalleled wonders spoken into existence by the voice of GOD, but as you marvel at the beauty that HE’S created around you, don’t forget to marvel at and embrace the beauty that HE’S created on the inside of you.
So often we lose sight of ourselves and the beauty of who GOD created us to be seeking after or dwelling on things that were detrimental to our lives and that were never worthy of our time or our effort in the first place. But how much greater would each day and night be if we chose to seek after the priceless treasures of GOD instead of the things that deter us from HIS promises and devalue the essence of HIS purpose for our lives? How much greater would our lives be if we chose to live knowing that each day and each night truly is GOD’S and that for those of us who believe, HE’S not only fighting every single battle of life that seems to a constant force fighting to break us, but that JESUS said that HE has already conquered those battles and won the war for us?! (John 16:33 AMP- I have told you these things, so that in ME you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer, take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted! For I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.)
Know and believe that no matter what you go through and no matter how tedious life may seem at times, absolutely nothing can separate you from the endless love of GOD and HIS extraordinary purpose for your life. (Romans 8:37-39 NLT- Despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through CHRIST, WHO loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from GOD’S love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from GOD’S love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of GOD that is revealed in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.)
Awake and arise in the morning with joy in your heart knowing that your day is GOD’S and sleep in perfect peace at night knowing that your night is HIS as well. Nothing and no one can sever the promise of GOD’S love for you or HIS faithfulness to you. So chose to live life fearlessly and faithful and not just to simply exist in it broken and silent. Don’t give up! Stay in faith and refuse to quit because though you’ve endured and suffered through what seems like an endless nightmare, on the inside of you lives a GOD WHO provides the power, ability, and capacity to become the reality of a beautiful dream. You are here on purpose, so live, treasure, and regard your life as such! (Jude 1:2 VOICE- Kindness, peace, love—may they never stop blooming in you and from you.)
