It is a new day, unused.
This is a new day
appearing for the first time
never in existence before
This day that you awoke to may appear similar to other days you have experienced recently, but it is not. It is 24 hours of unlimited opportunities, actions and achievements. This day has been untouched, glistening with new hope, crisp thoughts and bright ideas.
God designed and formed this morning and night just for you His creation, made in His likeness. So raise your head thinking of your Father in heaven and the newness that He gifted you. This time has never happened before. It is unused! It is original! And it is all yours, all 24 hours.
Today has untouched everything.
Your words are spotless, ready for a different vocabulary
with more loving tones, words that honor the listener and delivered with a joyful spirit.
Your ears are clear, available to give fixed attention to the speaker only, being slow to speak in return.
Your eyes are fresh to view all that is around you from a heavenly perspective.
Your mind is unscathed with renewal arriving from the Holy Spirit.
Your actions are just starting, willing to use the wisdom of God and His guidance.
There are things from yesterday and before that can effect your new, unused day, however you have a raw, unformed 24 hours now.
This is starting to sound like a serious responsibility, waking up to a new day. Can I make the right choices, speak with love, listen attentively, see appropriately, think wisely and act according to the will of God? Alone I can not act Christ-like. Let’s not allow this perspective and vision of the new 24 hours cause us any fear or discouragement. God gave us this newness and will not let us walk alone. He is with you always.
Wow each morning God gives us newness, a blank page!
Genesis 1:3-5 NLT
Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.
