One Day at a Time

“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
As the days become shorter, and get cooler, it is easy for us to start thinking about winter and dread the cold weather that will be coming.
I know that we have to prepare for it by making sure we have the necessary warm clothing we need. We need to make sure we have extra food and water on hand in case there are days we cannot go out. But once we have made these precautions, we can relax and just take it one day at a time.
We can rest in the Lord’s promise that He is always there to meet our needs. He will give us the strength we need to face whatever each day brings. We need not worry about tomorrow for He never changes and will always be there for us.

Prayer: Lord, our times are in your hands, direct our steps today and help us to rest secure in you, knowing that you will take care of the future.

Direct My Steps

In this chapter, Jeremiah has been warning the people about the dangers of idolatry and disobeying the laws of God. They have drifted far from God’s plan for their nation and walked in their own ways rather than God’s.
Human nature hasn’t changed. Today people still wander far from the paths that God has set. They choose their own way.
As followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we must daily seek His will and plan for our lives. He knows what lies ahead, and if we let Him direct our steps, He will keep us safe from harm.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, guide my steps today, and lead me in the path you have chosen that is best for me.

“Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” (Psalm 56:9 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible) Did you know that Heaven’s storage bins hold tears? Every prayer you and I pray are time capsules that God keeps. The Greeks and Romans put the…
