Topic: Live in the Present [October 21, 2016]
So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble. - Matthew 6:34
There is a reason God called Himself I AM (see Exodus 3:14). Not “I was” or “I will be,” but “I AM.” The greatest gift anybody has is the present moment.
Be determined to give yourself and your mind completely to what you are doing (see Ecclesiastes 5:1). No matter where your body is, you are where your mind is. If your mind is somewhere else, you can’t enjoy where you are. For example, if you’re in church, but your mind is on your grocery list, then you aren’t getting anything spiritually from the sermon being preached.
Start doing everything you do unto the Lord—to Him, for Him, with Him—and you will be able to focus on each moment of the present and enjoy life.
Power Thought: I live in the present and enjoy each moment of the day.
