Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Tell your days the outcome you want it to produce. If you repeatedly embark on a journey on a ship without setting sail, more often than not, where you end up will not be where you would have wanted to be. Failure to tell your days the outcome you want is tantamount to not setting sail, the occurrences are likely to be haphazard and any number will play. A better approach is to direct our days and life towards the outcomes that we want and doing that begins with commanding our days to produce a particular outcome. God has given us the authority to command our days, let us use it.
The Psalmist understood the authority that he had to tell his days the outcome he wanted it to produce. It is that understanding that inspired Psalms 118:24. The scripture teaches that there are two components to commanding our days. The first is to refuse to accept anything but God’s will for our day; that was communicated in the statement “this is the day that the Lord has made”. What the Psalmist was saying was that since God made the day, only His will, purpose and promises would be entertained. Most surely the enemy will attempt to impose his will, but refuse to accept it by maintaining expectation of God’s will being done. Telling our days what to produce should start with reminding ourselves of what God’s will is for our lives and directing our focus towards that said outcome. The second component of commanding our days is to speak the outcome we want to see. The psalmist did that when he said “I will rejoice and be glad in it”: he declared it as a day of rejoicing and gladness because he expected that at the end of it he would have the victory. Speak your good expectations over your days.
A victorious life begins with victorious days. Command your days to produce outcomes of victory and expect the same even when things are not going the way that you want. God will respond to your faith.
Life Application: Start your day by reminding yourself of God’s will for your life and command those outcomes to manifest in your life.
Prayer: Lord, I command my days to be in alignment with your will and purpose for life. May I be victorious over life’s challenges everyday. In Jesus’ name, amen.
