Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. Matthew 6:34 (MSG)
Looking at how the Lord made heaven and earth we can learn a lesson about how we can live stress free, live to the full, to overflow.
The Almighty, with whom nothing is impossible but all things are possible, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think, did not bring into existence all creation at once or in one day. The creation work was performed one day at a time. On the first day God focused only on and accomplished one thing – light. (Genesis 1:1-5).
If God can choose to focus on and be preoccupied with one thing at a time, we can’t have it any other way. Life’s about one thing at time. Today we are living in a world of multitasking where being able to juggle various tasks at the same time puts one ahead of the rest. Even when it comes to tools or gadgets, we prefer the ones that can simultaneously perform the widest variety and number of operations. While there are advantages in all this the upside is it has built a mindset of impatiently wanting everything done today, right now. This is a mindset of I have all of today, tomorrow and forever figured out, planned out set exactly as I want to the last detail. It’s wise to plan for what’s ahead but when it gets to the point where we are overly concerned, nervous and troubled then we have gone overboard. This is also known as, worry or anxiety. God’s plan is that we enjoy the journey on our way to our destination. It’s been said that the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. It continues with one step at a time and is finally done with that one last step. Through Christ’s strength we can do all things. (Philippians 3:19). This Jesus who strengthens me is the same yesterday today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8). So just as He strengthens me today, He is my strength today, my help today, my provider today, my guide today. He will be there tomorrow to strengthen me, help me, provide for me, guide me then. The same with the next day and all the way to forever. So, I don’t have to be fretful about tomorrow. He’s got it covered.
