TOPIC: CHOOSE JOY
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Matthew 6:34
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
You are not ordinary. In fact, there is nothing ordinary about you. Ordinary people are employed to work in days. Your days, however, are employed to work for you. Ordinary people go to bed at night anxious about what will happen tomorrow. They wake up the next morning worried about what will happen that day. But that is not the life for you. The scripture for today tells you that your tomorrow is employed by God to do all the worrying for you.
That leaves only today, and today has also been given its assignment. It is created by God to be a container for your joy. The Bible tells us that this is the day that the Lord has made. Your duty is to rejoice and be glad in it. This day exists to provide a space in time for you to rejoice in.
Not one second of today is allocated for worry, fear, or doubt. When you look at the clock, no longer see it as minutes ticking by in your day. Instead, face each day knowing that you have 86,400 seconds of joy to experience and explore.
God has created this day as a container for my joy. I will not waste a moment of it on fearful or anxious thoughts. Worry is far away from me, and I will never catch up to it. I live a life of expected joy. I choose joy now and every second of this day.
Psalm 118:24; Philippians 4:4
