Bible Ballistics: BBs #275 Living Today, Today???
We live in a culture consumed with the “future”. But God calls us to live life in the “here and now”, today! It is often hard to keep our mind on “today” living, much like Popeye’s buddy Wimpy. He was always saying, “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today?” Wimpy was focused on money that would appear later, to meet his desires today! And we live in a culture so consumed with having today what we “hope” to pay for next week, or next month, or next year, that many are overwhelmed with debt; debt that they may never be able to get out from under. But God calls us to live today, today. By trusting HIM “today”!
“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” Proverbs 27:1
Jesus himself called us to take care of today, today. Even when we pray we are to seek God’s face, and His will for today first.
“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:10-11
Tomorrow will bring it’s own issues, so we need to trust God today, seeking what He would have us do–today. And God clearly tells us what that is! To Seek and trust Him, today!
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Matthew 6:33-34
Where’s your focus today? Where is God leading you–right now? Look up, walk forward and press on with Jesus, today!
