“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” –Matthew 6:34
We face the duties, the privileges, the problems, perhaps even the serious troubles, of another day…. Some of the troubles we fear may never actually occur; some of them may be much easier than we expected: but today they all nevertheless may seem real enough and threatening enough. In fact, we at times may become so disturbed and weakened by anxious thoughts about the future that we are unable to meet the problems of the present with our full strength.
We should, of course, take prudent thought for the morrow and make reasonable and conscientious preparation for it. But we are not to be anxious about it. We are not to ruin the present day or lessen our ability to cope with its problems by worrying about what may or may not happen on the coming days. Our lives, our days, our future, are in the hands of our powerful and loving Father in heaven. The grace of our Lord is sufficient for each day as it comes. We must learn to live one day at a time as unto Him…. In the strength that God gives us now, let us strive to glorify Him every moment of this day.
