Fresh Hope – 28th December 2016

We all like to look ahead for what’s to come. That’s great, dreams for the future are very important. However, we can lose sight of today’s blessings by looking too far ahead.

It’s easy to keep looking ahead to what’s coming, and not live in the moment and enjoy today.

God is interested in the daily. Don’t be so consumed with the future, that you miss God’s blessings today. Someone once said, “Don’t be so concerned with the destination, that you miss out on the journey.”

Neither should you be worried about what’s ahead, thank God for what you have today and trust Him for what’s to come. A very famous prayer says, ‘Give us this day our daily bread.’

Psalm 119:105 says that God gives us a lamp unto our feet, He doesn’t give us a floodlight for the rest of our lives.

You may not know what tomorrow will bring, but you can trust Him for today.

Think about what you have today and be thankful for it. Pray and believe for the future. Living for God requires faith. Faith for today and faith for tomorrow.
