MAKE TODAY COUNT FOR GOD
We can’t worry about what has happened in the past any longer. There is no reason for us to worry or complain about it. It is done. All we have is today. This is the day that the Lord has made. We need to make today count for Him. He will allow us to use our past as a learning opportunity for us and others. He will give us hope for the future and plans to serve Him. We can have hope in Him today and for the future. We need to make today count for God by spending time in His word, looking for His direction and sharing His greatness with others.
Deuteronomy 6:25 “For we will be counted as righteous when we obey all the commands the LORD our God has given us.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we put our hope in You today. We can make today count for You by focusing only on today and what You want us to do. Help us not get distracted by the things of the world. Help us not get distracted by our own thoughts or inadequacies or shortcomings. We know You created us for a reason and help us to stay focused on You so we can make today count for You. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
Doing what God wants us to do today will help us make today count for Him.
We should make today count for God so what we do will be pleasing to Him.
We shouldn’t do things to get glory for ourselves. We should do things to glorify God.
John 8:54a “Jesus answered, ‘If I want glory for myself, it doesn’t count. But it is my Father who will glorify me.’”
