TRUST GOD AND REFUSE TO WORRY, for The LORD is your Strength and Song. You are feeling wobbly this morning, looking at difficult times looming ahead, measuring them against your own strength. However, they are not today’s tasks—or even tomorrow’s. So leave them in the future and come home to the present, where you will find Christ, The LORD waiting for you. Since The LORD is your Strength, HE can empower you to handle each task as it comes. Because The LORD is your Song, HE can give you Joy as you work alongside HIM. Keep bringing your mind back to the present moment. Among all GOD’S creatures, only humans can anticipate future events. This ability is a blessing, but it becomes a curse whenever it is misused. If you use your magnificent mind to worry about tomorrow, you cloak yourself in dark unbelief. However, when the hope of heaven fills your thoughts, the Light of GOD’S Presence envelops you. Though heaven is the future, it is also present tense. As you walk in the Light with GOD, you have one foot on earth and one foot in heaven.”
The LORD is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him. EXODUS 15 : 2
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 CORINTHIANS 10 : 5
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. HEBREWS 10 : 23
Prayer: Sweet Jesus, thank you for reminding me to refuse to worry about the future, measuring it against my own strength. Fill my thoughts with your great and precious promises and the hope of Heaven instead. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
