Morning Prayer, Friday, March 22 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: WHAT ABOUT TOMORROW?
Dear God, don't let me get caught up in the things in tomorrow that I have no control over. Instead, help me to focus on today and what I can control. Amen
James 4:13-17 and Proverbs 27:1
"There are two days in the year that we have no control over, yesterday and tomorrow.” Sometimes, we are so focused on tomorrow that we miss out on today. God may be planning to open doors or send a blessing your way tomorrow, but His focus right now is on your life today. Today, He wants you to be peaceful, happy, strong, encouraged and feeling loved. Today, He wants to make sure you are fed and clothed. Don’t get nervous and discouraged because you can’t figure out what may be happening tomorrow. What does the Bible say about focusing on tomorrow? Well first of all it tells us in Proverbs not to be so caught up in tomorrow because none of us know what a day may bring. Then, we go to James and we are told pretty much the same thing. You don’t know what tomorrow will bring so why are you freaking out trying to figure it out. Just thank God for today. Thank Him for safe travels today. Thank Him for food on your table today. Thank Him for clothes on your back today. Matthew 6:33-34 says "don’t be anxious about tomorrow.” We sometimes get frustrated over things we have no control over. I can’t control tomorrow because for one thing it is not here yet. Even if it was here, there are some things in tomorrow that I won’t be able to control so my prayer is, “Lord, help me to stay in the moment and believe that whatever lies ahead, You have it all under control.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
