Now is All You Have Devotional Words from the Lord Series
by Marijo Phelps 10/29/2009 / Devotionals
My daughter, did I not go before you and prepare the way for your recent move? Am I not even yet/still at work? There is a place for you (work) which will meet your needs and Mine in and through you.
Many times you get so caught up in focus on a week or two down the road that you forget now. NOW is all you have at any point in time. Enjoy NOW. Think of all the "nows" you've abided when you were missing out on great blessing by enjoying them then. Only in retrospect did they become precious.
I want you to realize the value of each day, just where you're finding yourself. I AM that you might be. Learn this, learn it well. Leave me tomorrow and forging through the wilderness to get there. You burden too much. Rest in Me. Selah.
2 Corinthians 6:2
For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation. (NIV)
So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you todayto love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul(NIV)
for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if you hear his voice..(NIV)
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (NIV)
Prayer: Dear Jesus, we aren't promised anything more than right now, today. Help us to make the most of TODAY. Help us to live each day as if it were our last on this earth. Help us to walk in your footsteps and abide in Your plans for us! AMEN
