This day is a gift to you from your heavenly Father. He has given you a full 24 hours filled with great potential and endless possibilities and He desires that you live it to the full, bringing glory to His name!
Don’t waste a minute of this great day worrying, stressing or being anxious, especially about what will happen tomorrow. Sometimes our minds are so far in “what will happen down the road” that we are not fully living in today, and today needs our full attention to make it through victoriously.
Worrying about tomorrow today is a serious trap. It will leave you depressed, negative and feeling powerless. When we meditate on the troubles and challenges that might or could or even at times, will happen tomorrow we end up bringing into today unnecessary baggage. Instead, we should use our energy to trust God. We don’t have to worry about today, because our heavenly Father knows what we have need of, so to we can trust Him for our tomorrows because He continues to know what we have need of.
Hear the words of God to you today:
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? (v. 25-30)
Let faith arise within you today! God can be trusted. He loves us and knows what we have need of. With Him, all things are possible. Seek Him with your whole heart. Place Him first in your life. Celebrate His goodness in your life. Trust in His plans, His timing, His way of working things out. Give yourself wholeheartedly to pursuing the things of God. And, don’t worry about a thing… God has given you grace for today and when tomorrow comes, He will once again give you grace for today. God is still on the throne and His eye is on you!
