MORNINGTIME 4050by Benjamin Munsell on July 8, 2022
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:34. Please read the following through the eyes of the Believer and his Growing Faith. And while you're at it, understand ANYTHING about the future is "Tomorrow" and goes with, "Lord Willing". (On to the Concept). If you Follow the Leading of the Holy Spirit and Obey His Directive, you'll Grow in Faith and get to graduate into the next step of Deeper Faith. If you don't Obey, you get to back up and go through that Lesson again. Today will be full of possible "Obedience's", or "disobediences", as you go through your day. Time will not stop or back up if you make a wrong choice. Time marches on and here comes the next choice. No "do-overs" here. Like a school test, you have 24 hours to complete all assignments and will be "graded" by the Holy Spirit on how well you do. Therefore, you can't make YOUR plans for tomorrow because you haven't finished your "test" for today. Have you properly done all assigned tasks for today to "graduate" into the "more Faith" class for tomorrow? Or missed the mark and go at it again? This is NOT weighing the good deeds against the bad and see which one wins out, as some religions teach, but a day by day, moment by moment Obedience class where the desired end is Growing in the Lord and into more CHRISTLIKENESS. The Lord gives these lessons and is ALWAYS Pleased with each and every "Growth". And whatever you could have "done better" on is sad, but "re-takeable". Here's the point. Today is so full of all the opportunities for you to Grow in Christ, you'll have no time to be concerned with or worry about "Tomorrow". And to do so is under Disobedience. Faith says, "Lord Willing, I'll be here tomorrow to fight on another day". And even that is to be determined by the Lord at the end of Today. There are many things we "Plan" for tomorrow, just don't assume they are Yours, and, Be Blessed.
