A believer, in recovery, looking to the Bible to know who I am in Christ.
This is the day the Lord has made; let’s rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24
Planting That Mustard Seed of Faith
I am not God. I serve Him. I believe in Him. Each day, I think on that to one degree or another.
Sometimes, I'm like that weekend sports warrior who wakes up so stiff feeling useless to God. Those days I don't feel like I'm any good to the kingdom.
I'm slowly learning even on those days to take that mustard seed of faith, and plant it. For today.
Why focus on today? Just one day of walking in the light is something I can wrap my mind around.
Tomorrow? That's more than I have to give. I have today to give.
"Exhort one another daily, while it is called today (Hebrews 3)."
God gives me today. "Give us this day our daily bread." Today.
Psalm 143 "Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust..." In the morning, part of the day. Right?
Psalm 118:24 "This is the day that the Lord has made." He has something for me to do today. He has made today for His purposes. I want to be part of that.
I pray in the now. It's not a text message that the Lord is going to read an hour from now. It's right now. Present tense. He hears me now whether I am meeting Him specifically for prayer, or calling to Him in a time of need.
I don't need to go through a secretary or pay any money, He's ready. My mistake has been to not reach out, to not call out, but to try and grunt through things on my own. I need Him today.
This is the day. I can wrap my arms (barely) around today. May I use it for His glory. Willingly, with great joy!
Lord, help me today. I need you every hour. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
