Bad Days

What makes a bad day? Is there any such thing? According to God’s Word, it is all about where you put your focus.

To God, each day qualifies as a day of rejoicing (Psalm 118:24). This doesn’t mean that followers of Christ won’t get upset, angry, or won’t have reasons for frustration during any given day.

However, when followers of Christ allow their trust in Him to take over, their circumstances don’t have the final say. What will also not have the final say are their emotions. Rather than continuing to be led by emotions, one can choose to be led by the Spirit of God.

Otherwise, whatever happens can make a day seem “bad”. This is why taking on the mind of Christ is so important. As it says in Ephesians 4:23, believers must allow their minds to “be renewed in the Spirit”. By allowing their minds to be renewed, they will find themselves becoming more glad and rejoicing more each day.

“yet I will exult the Lord; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!”

Habakkuk 3:18

“sorrowful, yet always rejoicing, poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.”

2 Corinthians 6:10
