Do you live life one moment at a time?
We ask God to give us one day at a time, and we ask Him to help us to live one day at a time. However, most of us wake up worrying about the next moment that we will face. We find all kinds of things to be anxious about. Why? It is simply because we have not learned to live one moment, one hour, and one day at a time.
Do you realise that this moment is all that you have? You are one breath away from eternity!
How can you live one moment at a time? You need to! You must. Only then can you really be at rest all the time. So, how do you?
Just sing that song, “One day at a time, sweet Jesus…” No, it doesn’t work that way. That is a wonderful song, but it is not enough.
Why do we worry?
Because we feel that we have to make things happen; get everything right, fix what’s wrong, get everyone saved, make people serve God, be accomplishing something all the time, and be working all the time or we won’t eat.
Do you have “The Plan” for your life? Do you know what tomorrow holds for you? What about the next hour? The truth is you do not. Who has “The Plan” for your life?
Jeremiah 29:11 Amplified Bible
“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 New King James Version
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Since God has plans for your life, He knows the beginning and the end of those plans. You do not. And He also knows what happens in between. However, we know that those plans are good, they are full of peace. They are not harmful or destructive plans; plans to cause pain. They are not evil plans!
Now, since you belong to God and God has plans for your life, does He expect YOU to fulfill those plans?
Romans 8:28 Amplified Bible
“And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.”
Romans 8:28 New King James Version
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
God causes; God makes it happen. He fulfills His plans for your life. He works!
Philippians 2:13 New King James Version
“For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
John 14:16-17 NKJV
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth …”
Holy Spirit came to help you. He did not come to fulfill your will, but God’s plan and will for your life. So why do you worry and are so anxious all day long? Ask Him to help you! Ask Holy Spirit to fulfill His plan for your life, and enjoy the moment. It is yours to enjoy.
This is what you need to say, “This is my moment, my hour, and my day.” I will rejoice and be glad in it. You keep saying that every time you feel anxious, like right now, and see what happens.
God bless you.
In Christ and in His service,
