Each day seems to be different. You don’t know what to expect. One man prayed, “Lord thank you for this new day we have never had before.” One preacher said, “Each day I begin it is different.” Some mornings I wake up and say, “Good morning, Lord.” The next day I say, “Good Lord! Morning!” Well, the following is my modified story about a bad day in the life of a Christian.
At the close of day he sadly said, “Lord, can I ask you something?” Sure! “Lord promise you won’t be angry” I promise. “Lord, why did you let so many bad things happen to me today?” What things? “Well I overslept. I woke up late. It ruined my day.” I know! “Then my car took forever to start.” I know! “Later at lunch, they made my sandwich wrong. I had to wait and wait.” I know! “On the way home, traffic was bad. I tried to call home but my cell phone was dead.” I know! “When I finally got home, I just wanted to massage my feet and relax, but the cord broke.” I know! “Lord, nothing went right today! Why did you let all this happen to me?” The Lord said, “Well, let me tell you the rest of the story.
This morning the death angel was at your bed. I had to send my angel to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through it.” WOW!
God: “I didn’t let your car start because at the time, there was a drunk driver coming toward you.” Really!
God: “The first person who made your sandwich was sick and I did not want you to catch her disease.” Oooooh!
God: “Your phone went dead because the person calling you was stirring up strife in the church. You did not need to be involved.” Whew!
God: “Oh, by the way, the electrical foot massager had a short that would have electrocuted you. Don’t use it.” I won’t!
Christian: “Lord, forgive me for complaining and not trusting you! God: “Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me in all things, the good and the bad. I always know what is best for you.”
Christian: “Lord, I have learned my lesson! Thank you! Thank You! Thank You for a great wonderful day that you made just for me!”
God: “You’re welcome! Just remember that tomorrow I will again be handling all your problems. I will not need your help. So, tomorrow, rest, relax, and have a good day.” The moral of this story is that God is always in control.
Let’s learn from God’s side and the rest of the story. Every morning we should gratefully say, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalms 118:24). let’s begin each morning with, “Good morning, Lord!” Then close each evening with, “Good night Lord! Thank you it was a wonderful day.” It was a day we have never had before. Realize that God will work all things together for your good and His glory (Romans 8:28). God will have the last word and it will be good. So as we say in Trenton, “Have a good-un y’all!
Thought: Did you know “FAD” means For A Day?
