(Kelly Mcdonald JR) “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34).
As humans, there are three things we are worried about: 1) our past, 2) our present, and 3) our future. There are things we have done in our past that we are not proud of. Sometimes we are afraid that our past actions will come back to haunt us. When it comes to the present, we are concerned with the decisions we should make now. We have bills that must be paid and obligations to meet. Lastly, we are concerned about the future. We think about how our needs will be met in the future. We have children, grandchildren, parents, or grandparents that may need our help.
Our enemy, Satan the devil, wants us to live in constant worry about yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The problem is that when we live in fear, shame, and worry, our right now passes us by. We let it go by without living every moment with purpose and drive. The most important moment of your life is now! In the first century, the Jewish people were waiting for the coming of the Messiah. When Jesus came, some recognized Him as the Messiah. Everyone else was still focused on the future. They were still waiting on the Messiah. The Messiah was in front of them, yet so many missed Him. They failed to recognize the time of God’s coming to them (Luke 19:44). The miracles of Christ were all overlooked because Jesus did not fit their mold. He did not fit their way of doing things. They had their own mindset of what tomorrow would bring, and they missed the now! CONTINUE
