Have you had your Joy Juice today? There’s plenty for you to have a huge serving today….as well as tomorrow, and the day after that and the next day……!
Do you ever find yourself holding back and not really making the most of today, because you are worried about what tomorrow may bring? It’s certainly wise to be thinking ahead, making plans and setting goals. But if we become so preoccupied and stressed about what MIGHT happen, then we may miss many opportunities for blessing today!
It all boils down to total trust in God—that He can and will take care of our needs. In Matthew 6:26 Jesus tells us: “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
This passage has nothing to do with laziness. It has everything to do with putting our needs in God’s hands. Planning for tomorrow is time well spent; worrying about tomorrow, however, is time wasted.
Let’s take a lesson from the birds. Instead of worrying about tomorrow, let’s cast our cares upon the Lord. While we are “abiding in Him” and resting in His peace, we can know that He is taking care of our every need. Our part is to continue to bear good fruit for His kingdom…and spread His JOY along the way!
Worry not….and have His joy…a lot!
