Matthew 6:34-Therefore, take no thought about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take thought about the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the trouble thereof.
CEV- Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have enough to worry about today.
In the previous verses before this text, Jesus is addressing fear and worry.
Nothing in this world is guaranteed apart from God, including our tomorrow.
There is no assurance with man that we will have a tomorrow. There is of course a desire to see tomorrow, but only God know the surety of it. Therefore, we are commanded to not be anxious, fearful or worried about tomorrow or what it may bring.
Should we plan for tomorrow? Of course!
James 4:14-15 -What do you know about tomorrow? How can you be so sure about your life? It is nothing more than mist that appears for only a little while before it disappears. 15 You should say, “If the Lord lets us live, we will do these things.”
Worry not about tomorrow! God promises to take care of His own.
Let's listen to Jesus speak to us in Matthew 6:25-26 I tell you not to worry about your life. Don’t worry about having something to eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food or clothing? 26 Look at the birds in the sky! They don’t plant or harvest. They don’t even store grain in barns. Yet your Father in heaven takes care of them. Aren’t you worth more than birds?
Each day has its own set of test, trials and problems. God is calling us to face them head on with the confidence in knowing that He is our God and that He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Worry is the opposite of that which God has called us to. He is calling us to "Trust" in Him by faith.
There is a song that that the saints of old used to sing when I was growing up that is called “one day at a time.”
The lyrics starts off with these words “I'm only human I'm just a man. Help me to believe in what I could be and all that I am. Show me the stairway that I have to climb. Lord for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.
One day at a time sweet Jesus that's all I'm asking from you. Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do. Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine. So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.
People of God, live one day at a time. Do not neglect the present for the future.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
People of God, the command today is to give our entire attention to what God is doing right now and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.
God is a promise keeping God!
Will you trust Him on today for your now and your future? If you do, He promise to take care of you.
We can't change yesterday, but we can ruin today worrying about tomorrow. WOW!!!
