Grateful for Today
Isaiah 43:19 (NIV) See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

“Praise God! What a privilege to be alive!

For each new sunrise, there are many new and unexpected things taking place within and around our habitual dwelling places. If we had the ability to wake up each day in a different geographical location and experience the skies, the environment, and the inhabitants of those places, we’d readily say, “Oh, this is new!” That might seem so, but it would only be something different from what we are familiar with. The new things God is doing are perceived by our spirit more so than our eyes. Our spirit makes us perceptive to the new things that are springing up both within us and all around us each day. This is a gratifying gift that flows to us from the heart of God. Aren’t you grateful for this brand-new day you’re witnessing right now? It is one you’ve never seen before, and you’ll never see it again. Thank God for the gift of today!
