Moving Forward With Faith Steps
How easy it is to be bogged down by the regrets of yesterday, and to be immobilized by the uncertainties of tomorrow. We often go through the day alternating between “Why did that have to happen yesterday?” and “What if I can't handle what may happen tomorrow?” Neither our regrets nor our fears have anything to do with what really matters the remaining hours of this day. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Jesus implies there is no point in worrying about tomorrow when today's plate is already full. Today and tomorrow we are to move forward by faith. Matthew 6:25-33 reminds us faith steps in the direction to seek first God’s kingdom (the church) and His righteousness. Decide today that you will give no weight to what's already gone and that you will spend no emotional energy on what is yet to arrive. Concentrate on doing your best to please the Lord today (2 Corinthians 5:9). Lamentations 3:22-23, Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Remember yesterday, today, and tomorrow's plate is linked to God's love and mercy. They come new every morning, washing out the remnants of the past, offering strength for today and hope for tomorrow (Romans 12:1-2).
