One of my dear sisters in Christ from church lent me a devotional from Dr. Tony Evans, a preaching hero of mine, called Life Under God. I got myself a little messed up and I ended up ahead of the devotional by a day. The truth he shared today was priceless and I just had to share it here. Now if you happen to be one of my Springfield people, it’s okay to read this, just don’t be surprised if you hear it in a sermon in the next month or two.

He starts off with these words from the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:34):

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.”

Most people are being crucified between two thieves: yesterday and tomorrow. They killed today because of what happened yesterday, and they are too scared today because of what may happen tomorrow. Do you know that today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday?

Now there is a truth bomb for you. Worry is a useless exercise that will strip you of the hope and creativity you need to solve the problems of today. Give this day to the Lord and move forward in hope.

Thanks Dr. Evans for this pertinent reminder and thank you Jesus for inspiring it.
