The great thing about having faith is that it allows us to stay at peace no matter how strong the storms are raging and no matter how difficult the obstacle in our path may be. Having faith in God gives us the assurance that nothing can come our way that He doesn’t already know about and has made provision for. That is why I am always at rest. I’m not worried about tomorrow. I don’t become anxious when I think about the unknown because I know the One who knows all things, at all times, in all places. I have confidence in the Lord because in the 20 years that I have known Him the Lord Jesus has never let me down, He has never been late in meeting a need and He has never left me wanting for any good thing. That is why it is easy for me to write down these words of assurance. God is faithful, He is true to His Word and every soul that puts that same confidence in the Lord will also never be left wanting for any good thing according to God’s will for their life. The Bible declares in Psalm 84:11 “…no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.” (Psalm 25:4-7) (Psalm 61:2-4)
Be encouraged to rest in the Lord as I have. Don’t worry about the bad report, don’t fear what is unknown to you right now, but with a quiet confidence dare to call every crooked path straight and every dark passageway illuminated. When we know Who holds our tomorrows it will be very easy for us to look past any negative situation because God will make a way when there seems to be no way and He will be sure to make our latter end much more blessed and fruitful than our former beginnings. Let us always be believers and not doubters, praiser’s and not naysayers always trusting that every new day that we are blessed and fortunate enough to see that we are becoming better, wiser and stronger than we were the day before it. Say with me what King David says in Psalm 103:2-4 “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.” God is worthy of our praise, of our testimony and our unwavering love because the Lord will never waver or weaken when it comes to His love for His beloved children. (Isaiah 42:16)
I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to never worry about or question your yesterdays, todays and tomorrow’s.
TWO DAYS WE SHOULD NOT WORRY
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born.
This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
James 1:2-4 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”
Psalm 40:1-4 “I waited patiently for the LORD; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.”
Isaiah 26:3-4 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.”
Psalm 37:23-27 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with His hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
