God's daily grace

Here's what I would ask that you catch (even if you don't read any further):

God gives us enough grace for one day at a time.

For those of us who deal with fatigue, burnout, weariness and worry, we must learn to live one day at a time.

It has almost become cliché in the Kingdom of God - but it is true; truly we can only live one day at a time.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:34, " not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own.  Sufficient for each day is its own trouble."

God does give us grace and God does give us His strength.  But he does so incrementally, as we need it. 

We are saved by God's grace - and we live by God's grace - daily.

So often we want to try to store up God's grace so that we are covered not only for today but also for tomorrow - and next week - and next month - and next year.

But like the manna that the children of Israel received as they walked through the Sinai (on a daily basis) - so we receive God's grace daily.

Now then, do you know why this is true?  Do you know why grace can't be stored up?

Because it doesn't take any trust to live that way. 

It takes a firm trust and faith in God to live daily in His grace.

When you and I start worrying and fretting about what we are going to do tomorrow, or any other time in the future it just won't work.

God wants us to trust Him for today.

Would you pray we me (as Jesus taught us to pray), "Give us this day our daily bread."

Just a thought for a Wednesday
