Today

TODAY’S VERSE
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.”
Psalms 32:8 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes we focus so much on tomorrow that we miss what God has for us today. How did it ever get to this? We are always on the go arriving at our destination yet ignoring the journey. We set goals way out in advance and fail to see what God has for us today. Fear and worry are like that. They rob us of our today, forcing us to focus on tomorrow with its perceived dilemma. Day after day we hurry and tomorrow never comes. It’s like hiking on a trail with a heavy bag, always looking down so you won’t trip on a root. Sadly, you get to the end of the trail and realize you never saw the beauty of the forest. God didn’t want it this way. He wants a relationship with us. He wants us to fellowship with Him everyday, living every day to its fullest. He promised that He will instruct us, He will teach us, He will show the way we should go. Every day is a different mission. Every day is a new exciting adventure. God is alive and you are here. Look up. Look around. Take it all in. See all that God has for you. He has a wonderful day planned for you so today, go with God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for giving me this day. I surrender to You and want to live every moment of this day for You. Teach me, guide me, show me which way to go. Lord, I give You this day and will live it to its fullest for Your glory.
Amen

TODAY’S VERSE
“Then I realized that my heart was bitter, and I was all torn up inside. I was so foolish and ignorant—I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.”
Psalms 73:21-24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Fear of abandonment is a real issue for many people. Those of us who are people pleasers suffer with this feeling all the time. So how comforting is it when God assures us that He will never leave us? Here is the Psalmist. He was bitter, foolish and ignorant to God. But when He came to his senses he saw how bad he was before God. The amazing truth is that God did not give up on him or leave Him. Instead He forgave him, comforted him, counseled him and continued to guide him. God’s love caused him to write one of the most beautiful verses ever written about God. “Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.” Today, might we believe this for our own self.
 
TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I know I don’t always live the way I should. I know many days my attitude is all wrong. But today I know You forgive me. I know that You will never abandon me. I know that You are committed to my maturity. Help me remember this as I live out this day.
AMEN
