SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/19- “Don’t Be Consumed With What Tomorrow May Hold—For We Only Ever Have Today!” (Matthew 6:34)
Premise Question: Why are we, as those who have been cleansed, redeemed and set free, having been justified through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, still prone to fret, worry and to being filled with anxiety; allowing our anxious thoughts to rule and consume us, about what may or may not happen tomorrow or in the future, when we have this blessed promise and admonition of The Savior, and can really only live each day, living by faith and putting our trust and hope in The LORD, as each day unveils itself to us?
““So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” (Matthew 6:34 NLT)
So, as a consequence of having all that you’ll ever have need of, in your daily life, provided to you by The LORD, you are now able to fully devote all of your attention to living life to the fullest, each and every day that you’ve been given. Therefore, it is foolish then to trouble or torment yourself, by being overly concerned about whether or not your daily needs will be provided for in a future time; such as, tomorrow, which you don’t even have the ability to live in anyway, as you only ever have today, each new day, to live and experience your life to the fullest! And besides, the future comes what may, regardless of whether you are adequately prepared for it or not; and by the way, today, this day, the only day you will ever actually have, has sufficient concern enough all by itself. (Matthew 6:34 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, can still be subject and prone to fretting, worrying and being filled and controlled by our anxious thoughts, if we dwell on them; the actual or even the potentiality for severe trouble, difficult trials and the hardships of terrible tribulation!
The LORD has told us, in a myriad of ways, to not be afraid or to let our hearts be troubled, nor our emotions, situations or circumstances to rule or control us, and to not be anxious about anything, but to always put our faith, trust and hope in Him, by praying, believing and then, receiving a peace and joy that is beyond our comprehension, and that can only come from Him, who has promised that we would have trouble, trial and tribulation in our lives, in this world, but, in spite and in view of all that, to still be joyful and full of cheer about it, no matter what, because He has overcome this world and all of its troubles, trials and tribulations! And because He has, so shall we!
King David, while writing one of the psalms, came to the realization that anytime he started fretting, worrying or became anxious about something, it never produced anything that was good, right or holy, and tended to only result in producing evil. So, let us trust The LORD in each day, as it comes to us, and leave tomorrow and the future in the more than sufficient and capable, all knowing, all powerful and overcoming hands and ultimate purview of The One who holds not only tomorrow in His hands, but all of our tomorrow’s in His hands; for we only really ever have today!
