Like No Tomorrow

When it seems as if your life isn’t moving forward–think again.

Have you ever stopped to watch a hummingbird? The hummingbird moves its wings at an incredible rate and yet stands still in midair to drink.

When it seems as if you stand still, and your life isn’t moving forward, think of the hummingbird. So much motion–barely perceptible to the human eye, yet he drinks sweet nectar and lives.

I want you to leave the motion to Me.

Understand that even though you may not see it, much is happening on your behalf. I want you to find the sweetness in life.

If you worry about all the details, you’ll miss the BLESSING.

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feed them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life?” Matthew 6:25-27

If you worry–you’ll miss it!

Worry will actually cause you to stand still, for then we must stop and work on worry, to get you back in faith–to move forward.

You work too hard at reaching your destination. I want you to enjoy today.

Drink deeply the nectar I have for you in this day, knowing that tomorrow, there will be more.

“Your lips distil nectar, my bride; honey and milk are under your tongue; the scent of your garments is like the scent of Lebanon.” Song of Solomon 4:11

Those who trust Me for their tomorrow, thoroughly, will enjoy their today like there is no tomorrow!

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.” Matthew 6:34

“As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more. But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” Psalms 103:15-18

“For he satisfies him who is thirsty, and the hungry he fills with good things.” Psalms 107:9

“I have seen the business that God has given to the sons of men to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has put eternity into man’s mind, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live; also that it is God’s gift to man that every one should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil.

I know that whatever God does endures for ever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; God has made it so, in order that men should fear before him.” Ecclesiastes 3:10-14

“O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” Psalms 34:8

 

Divinely Purposed

Divinely purposed is the attitude I’m looking for. Not one who looks to the right, nor to the left, or who is looking for the answer to the question, “What’s in it for me?” But purposed to do My will, no matter the cost, for the trust is great, that I will not disappoint and that My purposes are for good and not evil.

I had you in mind before you were born. Not to harm you, but to create for you a fulfilling life with a divine purpose; an end that is divinely appointed. I have not lost My blueprint for your life…

have you?

Consult with Me–your true Maker. For I AM the architect of your soul, and if you have lost your way, I will set your footing sure. Be at peace knowing that I have secured your future–you need not worry–you must not worry. For when you are in a worried state, we cannot move forward. But, when you are at rest, we plan…

and, when you are ready, we strike out.

Let’s purpose to plan today; don’t wait–time is so short.

Let us move forward to your future, with purpose!

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart.” Jer. 29:11-13

 

Open Your Hand

Release worry! So many clench worry so tightly it is like a child holding a penny tightly in his hand. The penny has no real value and will not prosper or provide the child with anything that will bless him, but still he clenches it tight and won’t let it go.¬† Open your hand; let it go! If you do, then you have an open hand that I can fill with true treasure.

Worry is a state of mind. It is many thoughts that have multiplied quickly to build a fortress against you in your own mind. I AM in your spirit–in the heart of your being, if you’ve invited Me there. I don’t dwell in your mind and neither should you!

Your mind is the avenue your enemy will try to take hold of. Block him and lock him out! You have the keys; My Word teaches you all the tricks of the evil one. I went through the same temptations and I overcame them with the spoken Word. Live by My example and then, when you have overcome–Be My Example.

Begin by conquering worry. It is the absolute opposite of faith…

But

At the same time, it is faith…

But, it is faith in fear–a convoluted form of faith…

Cast it out!

Read My Word and be filled with the faith that blesses and overcomes, and

Truly Live!

‚ÄúTherefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” Mt. 6:25 NKJV

“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” Mt. 6:27 NKJV

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him; fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off; but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be; yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” Ps. 37:3-11 KJV
