Today’s exhortation – today!
So often, our desire for tomorrow blocks the recognition of what we have today and so we miss out on enjoying today’s blessings. No one knows tomorrow except God and He tells us not to worry about it. There’s nothing wrong about thinking of the past, enjoying our achievements, but today is the present and it’s the world we live in right now. If you are reading this today, you are alive because Father God has a plan for your life that’s unimaginable and every day is a step closer to it’s realisation. As it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (I Corinthians 2:9)
Indeed some days may be more difficult than others, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint…(Romans 5:3-5). Hope doesn’t disappoint because The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness… (II Peter 3:9) and we know in our hearts and souls, all of us, that not one word has failed of all the good things that The Lord our God promised concerning us…(Joshua 23:14). We’re truly blessed and highly favoured to be alive today. Thank You Lord. Amen
