“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” (Matthew 6: 34, the Message)
Stay in the moment with God. Give up the inclination to think ahead to what might happen tomorrow, what we may need to do or know or be.
Our human perspective is limited about the future. We can’t see the variables ahead and we can’t know exactly what God wants, the good that He has planned for us. Getting ahead of ourselves, and especially of God, is a waste of effort, and it can sometimes even paralyze us as our minds build up unpleasant scenarios.
This verse reminds us to simply and wonderfully give our entire attention to what God is doing right now! There is good, beauty, love, inspiration to be felt and seen. With our consciousness full of tomorrow’s fears and plans, we lose the joy and freedom, the light and ideas that God is providing for us in this moment. God is Life, and His Life is with us and in us, right now. This is a magnificent thing!
Let’s release tomorrow’s worries and gratefully awake to what is going on today, what God is showing us and giving us. Let’s stop and smell the roses God has arrayed for us and trust His infinite power and wisdom to provide for tomorrow’s needs in just the right time and just the right way.
