One Day at a Time
Have you ever been overwhelmed in this life?
If we let ourselves,
we can become very discouraged,
and weighed down with the cares of our tomorrows.
In this Bible Study
we will journey through Gods Word
for Wisdom of how we can make it
when we find ourselves
tempted to worry and have anxiety about our future.
Every child of God will at some time or another,
battle the trial of worry and fear of our tomorrows.
Our Precious Lord teaches us in the Book of
Matthew of how we can walk through the days
of fear and worry and anxiety.
Matthew 7: 25-34
“Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,
what you shall eat, or drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat,
and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not,
neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your Heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought
can add on cubit unto his statue?
And why do you take thought for raiment? (clothes)
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;
they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you,
That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothed the grass of the field,
which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven,
shall He not much more clothe you,
O you of little faith?
Therefore take no thought,
saying, What shall we eat: or,
What shall we drink: or,
Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:)
for your Heavenly Father knows that you
have need of all these things.
But seek you first the
Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought
for the things of itself…”
Child of God,
The Lord knows all about our tomorrows.
Sister Joy does not know what you are facing
in your tomorrows.
Sometimes our tomorrows are filled with
excitement and happiness.
Other times we will face tomorrows that are
filled with uncertainty and anxiety.
Our Heavenly Father in His Word tells us that
Can you believe that the Creator of the Universe
takes care of the grass and lilies of the fields?
Well, He says He does!
And guess what!
God wants us to know that we are much more
important to Him than grass and flowers!
How much more will our Heavenly Father take
care of us.
Let us not be of little faith!
We do not have to worry about
food, or drink, or even the clothes we wear.
When the days of worry and fear come we need to
God know all about all our needs.
God promises to take care of us.
However this promise comes with a condition.
God tells us, first, to seek Him and His Righteousness.
When we are in the Presence of God,
(praying and seeking God to know what pleases God.)
God will take care of everything that brings anxiety and worry
in our hearts and lives.
We are to trust Him and Keep our eyes on
Jesus and what He did for us on Calvary.
We are not to worry about our tomorrows but to leave
everything in the hands of God.
God is omnipresent!
God walked with us through all our yesterdays.
God is with us this very moment!
God is also in our tomorrows working all things
out for our good!
We come to You in the Name of Your Son,
We ask You to help us when we are facing days
of worry and anxiety.
We ask You, Father God,
to help us keep our eyes on You.
Help us live for You and seek Your Will.
Strenghten our Faith in what Jesus did
for us at Calvary. Help us trust Your
Love for us. As we seek You and Your
Rightesousness, help us to rest in Your decissions
for our lives. You are in our tomorrows, working
all things out for our good.
We love love you Father God.
Years ago, before my Momma went to be with the Lord,
she used to sing that old song written by
“One Day At A Time”
“One day at a time sweet Jesus
that's all I'm asking from you
Give me the strength
to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake
teach me to take one day at a time”
