“This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.”
(Psalm 118:24-25, NKJV)
In scripture, David said, “This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” We quote this verse often, but the next verse is very interesting. He goes on to pray, “Oh, Lord, I beseech You, send prosperity now.” He could have said, “Send it tomorrow. Send it next week. Send it, God, at least by December when my taxes are due.” No, David was bold. He had a lot of nerve. He said, “God, I’m asking You to do it for me today.”
How many people have ever prayed that prayer? You might say, “Oh, I can’t be that bold. I can’t ask God to do it right now. I can’t put my timetable on it. Surely, God wouldn’t do it today.” No, you have not because you ask not. And if it’s not God’s best, you don’t have to worry. Our asking is not going to override God’s plan. But if we never ask, how do we know it’s not happening because we’re not asking? It’s better to be bold and say, “God, these are the dreams You have placed in my heart. This is what I’m pursuing. I know You are a now God. So God, I’m asking You to give me favor and send it today!”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Father, thank You for this day that You have made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. I ask that You send prosperity now. Send healing now. Send deliverance today. Move mightily in my life as I rejoice in You in Jesus’ name! Amen.
