Live Now or Never
Graced With A Present
Each day is a new day that God gives us everyday of our life. There is nothing new in appearance under the sun, whatever has happened will happen again according to the set plan of God (Eccl 1:4-11). But what makes each day special is the new mercies that comes brand new each day from the throne of God (Lam 3:22-23).
As each new day comes, new needs arises. We face tempations, trials and sorrows that need to be met supernaturally by God. Or else we will soon sulk in dissappointment beneath a heavy heart. So the writer to the Hebrews says in the Bible, "Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help [us overcome] in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]." (Heb 4:16, AMP).
For each new day the challenges we face can only be met when we confidently and boldly approach God's throne by faith through the completed work of Jesus. The moment we call God as "Abba Father in Heaven...." he will respond without fail in the present time if we come to Him in faith by the qualifications given to us through Jesus.
The greatest enemy to make us deny this beautiful relationsip with God which rejuvenates and restores our soul is when we fail to thrown away our guilty, shameful and condeming thoughts that comes from our past experience under the blood of Jesus through faith and give our worries about our uncertain future to God. The soul is at its best state when it is neither weighed with the past nor is shaken by uncertainties of our future life, but is firmly grounded in the gift of God's present time.
The past is a good place to visit to learn our lessons, but it is not a right place to pitch our tent and live there. The future stares at us when we strain to see the past without realising that we are made not to look back but just give a half glance and look forward. When you look upfront, you are ready to walk now and keep moving to a place where you have not seen yet. When your feet are grounded now in God's present time, you will realise that your future may be a mystery but it will surely be solved supernaturally as you have already started unwrapping the present God has graciously given to you.
Why don't you choose to make a difference in your life by saying this prayer with me to the God of your life, "Dear God, I have been weighed down by my past and have been shaken like a reed thinking about my uncertain future all these past days. I have not lived to enjoy your abundant life that you freely give to those who ask for it. From today I choose to give to you all my past and future to walk from now on in the present time moment by moment. Help me enjoy every moment of my life day today through Your Presence which multiplies the forgiveness of your mercy and the overcoming power of your grace. I will look up and be satisfied each morning when I wake up renewed in your image and light. Help me be thankful and to praise you all the days of my life for what you have done for me in my life. Bless you and ask you in Jesus name I pray! Amen!"
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." — Ralph Waldo Emerson
