One Day at a Time. It’s easy to fall into the worry trap, especially in time of trial. We often get out ahead of ourselves and ahead of God as we attempt to predict the many ways a trial may pan out. A typical human response to bad news tends to move automatically to a state of worry and anxiety. God clearly tell us in Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, present your requests to God.”
We must view our circumstances the way God commands us to. In Matthew 6:26 we read of God’s love and provision – even for the birds – as he asks us “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Jesus tells us, “Do not worry.” He promises to take care of us.
What trial are you facing today that warrants your trust in God? Jesus tell us in Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
God wants you to live-fully live-one day at a time, relying on Him to provide all your needs, physically and spiritually. Trust in Him. Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Lord, help me to live one day at a time, resting in the promise of Your love and provision for me. Thank You for caring about the details of my life, big and small. Help me to seek You first in all things. Amen.
