Bible Ballistics: “BBs” #70 Today, Yesterday or Tomorrow????
I was reminded recently by a friends comments, how often we live somewhere besides where we are. For those of us who are believers in Jesus Christ, who are kept by the power of our God, we can trust to His grace, we can know that His timing is right. The question we all face is, ‘Will we walk in His Spirit and trust Him with our lives’?
Galatians 5:25 says, “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
Jesus, himself, tells us we are to walk in the here and now.
Matthew 6:10-11, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread.”
This simple phrase reminds us that we are to walk with Jesus ‘TODAY’. What ever is in our past, is just that, ‘Past’. What is ahead tomorrow, only our Father knows, regardless of what the government, the weatherman or the media says—only God holds tomorrow. And as a popular song says, “ I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I DO KNOW WHO holds tomorrow.”
So? Here’s our shot for today??? Remember today is just that, “this present time”. I’d like to share a short prayer I wrote some years ago, I pray this almost every day.
“Father, YOUR will for TODAY is MINE.
YOUR work for TODAY is MINE.
YOUR pleasure for TODAY is MINE.
Tomorrow is YOURS alone, to reveal.
Yesterday is OURS alone; mine to release to YOU,
YOURS to weave into the image of Christ my Lord.”
