Dinah Washington sang this song in 1959, it went like this;”what a difference a day makes, 24 little hours for the sun and the flowers where there use to be rain”. She was not the only songstress to perform the song but I think she was the first.
This song reminds us that there are very few constants in life, everything changes; we can count on there being changes in our life’s journey, some for the better and some not so much. However, each day brings new opportunities.
We have the opportunity to correct mistakes of the past, to ask forgiveness for hurts we have created, and grant forgiveness to those who may have hurt us. It is very important to take advantage of every opportunity, for some tomorrow may not come.
There is one day however, that is more important than any other day of the week; it was separated by our Creator as a day to meet with him and rest from the daily cares of life. In the world of today there is a difference of opinion as to which day that is.
The Creator knew this would happen so he gave us a reminder in his laws to keep us on the right track, the 4th commandment states ” remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy, 6 days shall thou labor and do all thy work but the 7th day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God”.
Which is the 7th day is the question many will ask, some know the true day of worship but refuse to change old habits; others don’t know the truth they just follow the crowd. The answer is simple, but will you be willing to accept it’s truth.
Have you been following the crowd so long that what is wrong is natural and feels so right. The law was written in stone which means it is unchangeable, the enemy takes pride in confusing those who would seek to give God true worship.
Man has done what the Creator did not intend by changing the day of worship from the 7th day to the 1st day, but it was the 7th day(Saturday) that God made Holy from the creation of the world. Please don’t misunderstand I know there are sincere worshipers in every denomination.
We do what we know to do until we learn better, the truth will only be found when we earnestly seek for her. History holds the key, when we start the search; truth will reveal itself. We must be willing to chose to make the change and meet with our Creator on the day he set aside just for us.
We are all his children no matter the church we choose to worship in, it will be our hearts the Father will search. He has many folds and many sheep, we all fit in one of them; remember with each new day comes new opportunity.
Yes it is true, a day can make a great difference; it depends on your choice.
My revelation as I sit by the pool of grace
