Make The Best Of Today, Thursday Feb 2nd

Thursday, 16 February 2012


Pastor Chris
For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Some people are either regretting the failures of yesterday or fretfully dreading the challenges of tomorrow. But God doesn’t live in your yesterday; His name is ‘’I AM’’ not ‘’I WAS’’ or ‘’I WILL BE.’’ Hebrews 11:1 says, ‘’Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’’ Faith is now; and the Bible says without faith it’s impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6)

The life of faith is not about yesterday or tomorrow; it’s about today! Faith works now. It’s your response to God and His word-NOW. So instead of having regrets of who you were or what you did in the past, or worrying about what the future holds for you, focus on the now! Ask yourself: ‘’who am I now?’’ This is what matters. Make the best of your today.

Regrets of yesterday and fears of tomorrow are enemies to today’s happiness. It doesn’t matter that yesterday’s assessments of you weren’t favourable; that was yesterday and it’s gone. Focus your attention to God’s word to you now. Meditate on His truth about your personality and identity in Christ, and not on the failures of the past or the fears of tomorrow. A businessman who says for example, ‘’ I know my proposal won’t be approved,’’ has already voiced his fears ahead of tomorrow. God doesn’t triumph in your fears; He triumphs instead in your faith.

Instead of anticipating tomorrow’s failures or the negative response you may get from people, choose to be positive and happy for today; make the day a success. When Elijah met with the Lord on the mount of Horeb, God asked him: What are you doing here, Elijah?’’ (1 kings 19:9). It didn’t matter where he had been or where he is going; God was interested about his current location. Today is what counts, so make a move to be your best today because tomorrow isn’t promised you. Tomorrow only belongs to those who take a hold today because today is the springboard for tomorrow.

Prayer

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads me with benefits, even the God of my salvation. I rejoice exceedingly today knowing that your ears are attentive to my prayers, to grant me my heart’s desires. My joy overflows today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
