I have begun reading a book titled Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It is a devotional book for the entire year. I read this book along with my Bible. I am using the King James Version.
I have had this book for awhile now and just picked it back up again today and I'm glad I did.
The versus that I was shone to look at today are:
Psalms 118:24 `"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Philippians 3:13-14 13 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. 14 "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
To me this is telling me that God wants to embrace today while forgetting about yesterday and not looking towards tomorrow. I for one know how hard this is to do. The worry that I have for my family and how we are going to get through week to week is something that I do on a regular basis.
We have to learn to give everything to God and let him help us deal with every obstacle that is put in our path. If we think only of today, our fears of the past and future will not be able to break us down, which is something that the Devil wants to happen.
In each 24 hour period he will not allow us to take on too much. The voice over our shoulder are the Guardian Angels that he has sent down to us to help us through out the day. The voices can come from friends saying what we needed to hear at the right moment; a call out of the blue from someone that we've been thinking about, or even our inner voice telling us that God is always looking over us, and ready and willing to help as soon as we give him our worries, fears, wants, and wishes.
Just remember that if we think of only today, our past has already been written and forgiven, and our future has yet to be forged.
