God's will for you is today!

If today does not do it for you, why do you think a tomorrow you do not have yet will? Make the best of right now, tomorrow is not yet yours! Proverbs 27:1
People, most always are living for a time they do not have, looking to a tomorrow that is not yet theirs. Always hoping the time they do not have yet, will make the difference in their lives.

Why do we tend to do that? One answer may be, we do not want to do the work. Or ask God to make the changes in us needed, to make today work. We are so anxious for what we think, is a bad day to pass that we are missing out on the blessing God may have in store for us.

Proverbs 27:1-Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. ESV
Matthew 6:34-"Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. ESV

Simply put, what you have is now, today, nothing more and we are to make the best of it. It may be hard, we may have some days better than others. Yet we are to make the best of what we have for certain, today. If we could only learn to be grateful for right now, what we actually have, instead of the uncertainty of  tomorrows that are not yet ours.

Live for today, let the one bad hour pass knowing you have the rest of the day to make a difference. Never look farther ahead of what we have, be grateful for right now. Ask God to do a work in you, ask Him to teach you and show you the lesson for right now. Be different, enjoy the day, do not lose today by trying to live for tomorrow.

Instead, as it says in James 4:13-17-Come now you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit" yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is you life? For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, "if the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that. As it is, you boast in you arrogance. all such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
