A Christian Meditation on Rejoice Every Morning for Today in Psalm 118:24

An important part of Christian meditation is to use your biblically guided imagination to see the better, unseen realities our lives are in, and to bring our mind and body into an integration with those spiritual realities. Otherwise we become a mind/body that’s fragmented and disconnected from spiritual realities, that's hijacked by tension and anxiety, anger, frustration, and fear.

Psalm 118:24 ESV

This is the day that the LORD has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Contextually speaking this verse is prophetic of the day of Jesus’s death and resurrection for salvation, as well as the day of his return. Like the entire Psalm, this verse is layered with prophetic imagination.

But it’s also a true principle all on its own…

Psalm 118:24 ESV

This is the day that the LORD has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Like Paul writes in…

Philippians 4:4 (ESV)

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)

16 Rejoice always (shortest verse in the original Greek Bible), 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Say aloud to yourself…

“Because this is the day that the LORD has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
