Live For Today

This is the day the Lord has made. Let’s rejoice and be glad today!

Psalms 118:24 GW

“This is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven, let your name be kept holy.

Let your kingdom come.

Let your will be done on earth as it is done in heaven.

Give us our daily bread today.

Forgive us as we forgive others.

Don’t allow us to be tempted.

Instead, rescue us from the evil one.

Matthew 6:9‭-‬13 GW

Today the Lord your God is commanding you to obey these laws and rules. You must faithfully obey them with all your heart and with all your soul.

Today you have declared that the Lord is your God and that you will follow his directions, obey his laws, commands, and rules, and listen to him.

Today the Lord has declared that you are his people, his own special possession, as he told you. But you must be sure to obey his commands.

Then he will place you high above all the other nations he has made. He will give you praise, fame, and honor, and you will be a people holy to the Lord your God, as he promised.

Deuteronomy 26:16‭-‬19 GW

What is today?

Today is another day that the Lord has provided for us to do His will.

Yet, what do most people do?

Anything but God’s will.

They are slaves to sin.

Anything not done in faith is sin.

Our rebellious hearts seek to satisfy our own fleshly desires instead of seeking to please our Father in Heaven.

I see a problem in the Church.

Men want to be leaders.

Women want to be leaders.

We are supposed to be followers.

We are supposed to be sheep.

We are supposed to be disciples of Jesus Christ, the head of the Church.

Who leads your local church?

If it’s not the Holy Spirit, your church is out of order.

The humans that God ordains to help shepherd the flock need to be Christians who walk uprightly before the Lord.

They need to be people of integrity, fully submitted to God.

Otherwise, they will lead you astray into their own sinful ways.

Misery loves company.

Watch out for people that like to be in charge.

They have a controlling spirit.

The spirit of witchcraft.

They lack self-control.

If you want to be anything in this world, you must first master yourself.

This world is temporary.

It’s a proving ground for the substance of your soul.

Don’t be concerned about worldly things.

Be concerned about what has your Father’s approval.

Don’t serve to be seen.

Serve with purity of heart.

God is pouring out His Spirit in greater measure in these end times.

There’s so many areas in which to serve.

There’s so many opportunities to make a positive impact on this world.

How does one choose what to focus on?

Ask God.

After all, we’re not here to follow our whimsy, we’re here to follow God.

God is cleaning up His Church.

Evildoers are being exposed.

It’s time to repent and return to God.

He is Our Lord.

He’s in charge.

He’s not just our Savior.

He is our King.

There’s a very good reason for the separation of Church and State.

The Church is eternal.

The State is temporary.

The Church is a steward of the mysteries of God.

The State is a steward of earthly things.

Trust God.

He loves you.

His guidance always works to your advantage.

Your flesh won’t like it.

But your spirit will rejoice.

Lean not on your own understanding.

But in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your path smooth.

Sit and be still before the Lord.

Seek Him with all your heart, all your soul and all your strength.

He will reveal Himself to you.

You were created to be like Him.

Be like Jesus.

Your life is a sacrifice.

A love offering.

A sweet smelling aroma to God.

Be poured out for all.

In Jesus’ Name I pray.

Amen.
