GRACE FOR TOMORROW DOES NOT COME TODAY
Have you ever wondered why God doesn’t download enough grace today for the next week or month? Wouldn’t it be nice to just get the big load of grace that is needed for tomorrow, next week, and next month TODAY? It sounds good in theory, but we all know it’s not possible. Whatever bulk shipment of grace we got that was shipped in order to be rationed out for today, tomorrow, next week and next month – you know full well that we’d all stuff ourselves trying to take it all in at once. Or, we’d set it aside and begin to think that is wasn’t enough and we’d want more. We’d assess the situation and apply our fears and all the obstacles we think we know about and we’d decide that whatever bulk shipment God gave us, it isn’t enough. We’d complain and ask for more grace for tomorrow - today.
I sound silly don’t I? Isn’t there truth to it though? God is amazing! He tells us not to worry about tomorrow because tomorrow has enough trouble of its own. He says that nobody ever added a single hour to their life by worrying. This is why He gives us each the amount of grace we need for today – today.
God is an amazing Father. He knows what you need today (and tomorrow, and next year). But, he wants you to focus on Him and His grace and strength today, and let Him mind the rest.
For everything He has prepared for you to do today, He has the grace for you to do it – today. Enjoy your day. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
