“Be, therefore, not anxious about tomorrow;
for tomorrow will be anxious for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day is its own evil.” Matthew 6:34 AKJV
Be not anxious about tomorrow Father?
But it’s ok to be anxious about today?
Or maybe… there is enough trouble today to deal with and how are we to focus on what is at hand as effectively as we might, if we allow our attention to be divided …between what is at hand and what we don’t know but imagine about tomorrow…
We wake to a new sunrise Father.
The sky is big…broad…hinting at a vastness we can barely have a sense of.
Clouds are way high up and a veil through which Your setting moon can faintly be seen.
Birds make their way flying midway overhead between earth and heaven, on their daily migration from east to west.
The air is cool.
All of a sudden…nothing else matters.
The first fruits offering of the day are the turning back to You… in praise and thanksgiving… the blessing You pour out on us through the beauty and wonder of Your creation…
made visible… evidence of Your power and order and realness, Your absolute and eternal control…
an act of love to us… and reassurance for us… here and now in this day…today.
And we look up…through the creation to You…
the One who created heaven and earth…
the One from Whom our all, and only, help comes.
How hard it is Father…not to be anxious in the midst of daily bombardment from the world. Things indeed are falling apart…and at times it is so overwhelming… and the sense that we are powerless makes us downcast.
To the extent that all this draws us to You Father… so be it.
Enable us Father, to respond, always, to the anxiousness, setting it aside, doing what we can and trusting in You for all else.
In the process Father we claim and trust and are blessed in the promise…
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you;
Not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
Neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27 AKJV)
Whose heart is so hard Father, that does not melt and surrender before such kindness.
We love You Father…
and in Yeshua’s name we pray…
