Today I was talking with a friend. My friend has the heart to make a difference, but is unsure how to go about accomplishing the task. My friend sees the need, yet is struggling with how to put it into action, without assistance. Then my friend said the most amazing thing. ‘If it’s meant to be, God will put the people in place.’ This statement is so true. One day at a time. One step, even a baby step, is all that is required to continue towards tomorrow’s assignment. One day at a time, because tomorrow’s not here yet. Today, my friend reached out for discussion and prayer. That’s a big step. When we begin to discuss the options and opportunities that God has planted in our path, we begin to visualize the possibilities.
Matthew 6:34 MSG
“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."
God offers us such sensible instruction. ‘Don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.’ Today God may place something specifically and intentionally in our path. Today we can be instrumental in getting this particular thing started towards the next step. It may surround starting a conversation, connecting with someone specific, praying for someone, praying for an organization, working towards setting up a new opportunity, or so many more things that we aren’t even aware of. One day at a time.
When we do what God has asked us to do today, He will take care of what comes tomorrow. When the time comes, the next step will be there. When we go where God leads and do what God asks, we can walk sure footed and assured. One day at a time, means we do our best work today, because God’s got tomorrow covered.
