There’s a lot of power in today. An old adage says, “What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.” As we relate this to spiritual matters, the following are some ideas that you can use to make today better.
- Today, I will begin to put God first in my life and in all my thoughts, actions and plans (Matthew 6:33).
- Today, I will do those things that need to be done, not putting them off until tomorrow, that is presuming upon God (James 4:13-15).
- Today, I will seek God’s wisdom in all my decisions, realizing that He alone knows the Father (James 4:13-15).
- Today, I will look to Christ with all my problems and burdens, knowing that He can give me rest (Matthew 11:28).
- Today, I will refuse to worry about physical and emotional concerns, knowing that God will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
- Today, I will worry about nothing and pray to God about everything (Philippians 4:6-7).
- Today, I will learn to be content with what I have, resting on God’s promise that He will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5).
Today, what will you do? Abraham Lincoln said, “You can’t escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” The New Testament puts a premium on today. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, “We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:1-2). The Hebrew writer added, “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion” (Hebrews 3:15).
