Monday Morning Devo - Tomorrow
[Jesus said] "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:34, NKJV
None of us is guaranteed the rest of today, let alone tomorrow.
I'd be willing to bet at least half of the people who die suddenly gave some thought (if not downright worrying) that day as to what they were going to do the next day--tomorrow. A percentage of those had been so worried about what would happen tomorrow that they weren't paying close enough attention to now. Maybe some of them would even still be alive if they had been more concerned about today.
No, I'm NOT telling you to quit planning for your future. In fact, I'm urging you to get ready for the big future. You might meet your Maker today--or tomorrow. It's time you started thinking about that, if you haven't already.
Am I trying to scare you into accepting Jesus into your life? No, not really. Life with the Lord is soooo much happier when He's at the head. I've been on both sides of that fence, and I can tell you for sure. So what I'm trying to do is introduce you to a happier future.
Earlier this week I shared one of those pictures on Facebook. It said, "God doesn't recruit from the pedestal but from the pit." Someone responded that the whole world was in the pit, and where was God?
Where is God? He's standing there holding out His hands to anyone who wants out of the pit. The trouble is, people are so busy observing and surviving in the pit they don't see His hands reaching out to them.
What if you knew there would be no tomorrow. What would you do?
Please don't give up on us. Don't drop that offer to lift us up to You. Thank you for loving us. Please wash all those ugly sins away from us and make us clean. Thank You, Lord. Amen.
