Today

Yesterday I was lost
My soul was bound for hell
Then Jesus came along
And released me from my cell
 
Tomorrow I’ll be with Him
In heavenly places above
He’s building me a mansion
Since He saved me with His love
 
Today I’m going to praise Him
For all that he has done
Today I’ll worship His sweet name
For the future that will come
 
For all that He has promised me
Boils down to just today
So this day I’ll make the most of it
And lift His holy name
 
Why do we go about thinking we can get something done tomorrow?  Has God promised us tomorrow?  Do you know something that I don’t about the future?  Because from what I read, God ahs only promised us that we have this present moment.  He can call us home any time.  He can take our faster than the blink of an eye.  He can have chariots come down from heaven and whisk us away if He wants to.  But I go about thinking I can press on toward the mark tomorrow.  I think I can have my time of prayer tomorrow, that I can [praise Him tomorrow, that I can be delivered tomorrow, that my finances will get better tomorrow.  Jesus said we should take no thought for tomorrow! (Matthew 6:34).  We often translate this into don’t worry, but  if we take it literally it would tell us to not even think about tomorrow.  God is the God of NOW, of TODAY!
 
I pray you will make the most of this day.  Spend a little longer today in prayer than yesterday.  Spend a little more time in the word, a little more time on your knees, a little more time reaching out to others, a little more time praising Him.  Time is a finite thing.  We can’t get more of it.  But we can redeem it properly, use it to our advantage.  Make sure you are making the most of your time by concentrating on doing more for the Lord todayt
 
Ephesians 5:16 King James Version
 
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
