In Him there are no dead ends; life is wide open, as open as eternity. If we’ll give Him all that we are and seek Him in this moment, He will take care of all our tomorrows. We can count on it.

We shared some stories with a dear friend last night and were reminded of how very near our God is, at every turn, at every trial and in every triumph right there with us. Tomorrow looks much brighter when we remember.

Scripture says we’re to be anxious for nothing, really, nothing? Does God know how many things come our way each day that are really worthy of worrying about? I mean big things. And we don’t need to get worked up about them? Could it be true? The only way to know for sure is to give it a try. Is God real enough, does He care enough and is He big enough to meet us right here, come beside us and take on our worries, fears and concerns? It’s not easy; too often I’ll trust Him with something only to take it back upon myself only to find restlessness and unease. The better I get at leaving those things in His hands the more peace and ultimately resolution I find. I pray this for you today.

Let’s not let the regrets of yesterday and the worry for tomorrow steal the joy from today. This day is a gift from God and it is only in it that we can be in His presence. When we focus on yesterday’s failures we’re setting ourselves up for another day of disappointment. When we’re anxious for tomorrow we miss the opportunities He has for us now creating another day of failing. If we’ll listen, trust, and follow His direction today, we’re able to put the past behind us and trust that He will fulfill His promises for tomorrow. He loves you so much.

It’s okay to ask God what’s next? As long as it’s not at the expense of what’s now? Too often we ask Him, “What do You want me to do with my life?” and don’t ask, “What do You want me to do?” It’s easy to put off what God may be saying for another time but God’s promises for tomorrow don’t get started until we hear and respond to what He is saying for today. His future for us is built on the intimacy we embrace now.

Life is too precious to put off until another day.

Scripture says, “You do not know what will happen tomorrow” yet most of us live our lives like we know what’s coming. We get comfortable and settle into a life that we don’t need much help with and we consider this security. Then when something surprising happens we’re not equipped to handle the change. True security exists in a life dependent on God all the time.

The greatest gift we’ve been given is the present (pun intended). The only time that’s important is now. This incredible gift is completely unappreciated when we waste today focusing on the regrets or accomplishments of yesterday and is just as misused when we worry about tomorrow. You can only be with God right now and He would love to walk through this entire day with you.

As we talked about in yesterday’s post, knowing what God wants us to do today is not complicated. However if we aren’t going to be faithful in this, why would He reveal what is next? God’s promises for tomorrow are tied to the choices we make today. When He can trust us with the smaller things then He will begin to bring us more.
