God is fatihful, consistent and dependable. No matter what is going on in your life today, you can depend on Him. He often seems to like to keep it where we depend on him one day at a time. That’s why the Lord’s Prayer says:
“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11
It’s one step at a time. His provision is fresh. It’s daily. He’s got perfect timing. Quit worrying about next year. You’re supposed to plan for the future, but not worry about it. Trust him – trust that He’s going to give you enough today.
We worry so much about things we might not even be alive for. Do you realize that? You’re worried about next year. What if you’re dead? “Oh no, I have a new thing to worry about.” Stop it. You have today. Breathe in, breathe out. God has perfect timing, just when you need it. Never late, but also never early. That’s our God.
He also enjoys talking to you. If God just set you up with enough peace and enough strength to last you for the rest of your life, you’d probably never pray again. And neither would I.
He just gives us what we need for the next fight. We’ve got to go back outside of our tent each day to scoop up some more manna for the next day. That’s how he keeps us in that right relationship with Him.
Our greatest need is time with Him. The longer you’re in contact with Him, the more you can become like Him.
