TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
WHAT’S IN FRONT OF YOU?Psalm 118:24
Whatever happened yesterday, it’s gone. It’s finished. Whatever happens tomorrow is null and void because you’re not there yet. Today is a brand spanking new day that God has made for us to enjoy. You can live your life in a whole new way by sticking with this attitude: scrap two days from your mind – yesterday and tomorrow – and just focus on today.
What’s right in front of you today? Who can you bless? Can you learn patience, gentleness, kindness from your experiences, even in the next few hours? Will you look closely at what’s in front of you each day? If you do, maybe you’ll see familiar situations and people in a new light. You might find yourself starting to understand how you can make a difference. You’ll even find that living the right way today takes care of a surprising amount of tomorrow. That old exhortation to ‘seize the day’ simply means taking a careful look at what’s around you, who’s near you, and what situations you’re already involved in. Invest time and character into them, and you won’t go to bed feeling like you’ve wasted the day. Look to help those around you, and look to God to help you with it; but don’t be tempted to waste the day in couch potato land which, let’s face it, usually leaves you feeling limper than mouldy lettuce.
In 1 Samuel 3:9 , Eli told Samuel to say the most basic of prayers, ‘Speak, LORD, your servant is listening’ (NLT). Pray that prayer, and focus on what God has to say to you today.
