What do you think of when you hear this phrase?
TODAY IS THE DAY!
Do you get excited? Does it send a thrill through your body as you anticipate great things happening?
Or do you get anxious? Does it create a sick feeling in your stomach as you think of the pressures the day may hold?
I am willing to bet that depending on the day, you have felt both of these sensations at the mention of these 4 words…TODAY IS THE DAY!
We live in a world that is changing by the minute. This past year feels like things are changing by the milisecond! It is easy to develop what I have coined as, “Covid Caution.” Or the extreme of “Covid Caution,” which is “Covid Crazy!” Due to the fact that today’s norm may not be true for tomorrow!
This feeling of loss of control can produce high levels of anxiety and make us dread the day, rather than seize it.
Truth is, TODAY is all we have each time we wake up until we lay our head down at night.
Yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not yet come! God willing we will have more tomorrows, but TODAY is what God has given. What are we going to do with it?
“But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “TODAY,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13
Friends, are we allowing the deceitfulness of our sin to rob us of our TODAYS?
I mean, are we allowing the enemies voice to be the loudest voice we hear and deceive us with his lies? Is he still deceiving us by bringing up our past sins and stealing TODAY away from us?
Are you hearing the deceitful voice tell you that you are not not good enough, you are not strong enough, you are not smart enough, clever enough, attractive enough, or known enough?
Are you frozen in anxiety that creates fear and doubt? Are you overwhelmed with the anxious thoughts of what if? What if I fail? What if I am not prepared? What if this or that happens? The “What if’s,” can freeze us in our tracks and prevent us from ever living TODAY!
The definition of ANXIETY is, “Full of mental distress or uneasiness because of fear of the unknown and excessive worry.”
The saddest part of ANXIETY is that most of what we worry about, NEVER EVEN HAPPENS TO US!
The truth is God tells us “TO NOT BE ANXIOUS.”
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life…” Matthew 6:25
GOD WANTS US TO LIVE TODAY AND TRUST HIM FOR OUR TOMORROWS!
“AND WHICH OF YOU BY BEING ANXIOUS CAN ADD A SINGLE HOUR TO HIS SPAN OF LIFE?” MATTHEW 6:27
TODAY IS THE DAY my friends! It is the opportunity to trust in our great God! It is the time to know that He holds tomorrow in His hands, and that He loves us and will take care of us no matter what!
So let’s live TODAY like God intended us to live it! Let’s remember that,
“TODAY IS THE DAY The Lord has made! We can rejoice and be glad in it knowing He holds ALL OF OUR TOMORROWS!”
Speak Truth Love
