Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Life is busy, and our schedules are constantly full. Worry sets in when we can’t seem to get everything done, and today’s troubles spill over into tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year. But a life of worry is not the life God intended for us. Instead, He wants us to remain focused on what He has for us right here and now.
Does this mean we shouldn’t plan for the future? No. It simply means we should take each day in sushi-size chunks. How do we do this? Be intentional in carving out time to spend with God. Focus on the important, not the urgent. Accomplish one goal at a time and pray continuously throughout the day.
God is always faithful. If He cared for us yesterday and provided for us today, we can have faith that He will do the same tomorrow. So, don’t waste time worrying about tomorrow. Instead, focus on what God wants you to do today, and do it one step at a time!
Set yourself up for success by making a list of the things you can tackle today. And the first thing on your list should be starting every day by spending time with God!
God, thank You for Your power and provision in my life. Help me to seek You first in everything I do and to focus on the big things over the small. Help me to trust You with my tomorrows. In Christ’s name, Amen.
