Let tomorrow be tomorrow and today be today

A devotion on trusting God with our worries

Today, it is so easy to worry. When will I make more money? When will I find the one? How am I going to reach my goals? 

We are constantly looking for the next best thing because society shows us there is always more to obtain. We start to lose our sense of gratitude for what we have, and this can lead to unfulfillment, jealousy and lack of intentionality in the moment we are currently in. 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6

True fulfillment can come through God and casting your worries, thoughts and requests to him is what he tells us to do in Philippians.  

In Matthew, we’re reminded again what worries we’re responsible for.

“Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Matthew 6:34

We may not be able to stop trouble in the world, or trouble in our lives, but one thing we do not have to do is worry about it.

This is another message from God about giving the future to him. By doing that and living out what he says, we can redirect our thoughts to glorify him and put our trust in him and him alone. While we all can struggle with anxious thoughts, know that you are enough no matter what.

Enjoy the moments you are in and let tomorrow be tomorrow, and today, be today.
