Not Next…It’s Now

now 2Why does God call Himself Yehovah or I AM? Cutting to the chase for today’s entry is this: He lives in the now, not the past or the future. Yes, another title for Jesus is “I am who is, who was and who is to come.” Yet, time has no limitations on God as He created it and lives in and outside of it at the same time. Go wrap your head around that one.
Yet for today think on this: He is. He lives in the now and teaches us to do the same. Why? To do otherwise gets us into deep trouble! Psalm 37:8 states, “Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret – it only leads to evil.” The word for “fret” here means getting all worked up by focusing on what you can’t control – the actions of others – past, present or future.
Life is not about living, but a series of opportunities to choose to enjoy your walk with Jesus today as you become more like Him. You can’t control what others do or don’t do, but as a child of God, you do control your choices whether or not to trust Jesus.
Verse 9 goes on to say, “Those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.” Victory over your drugs of choice, peace of mind, feeling wanted, doing something significant and meaningful with your life, or whatever it is you’re searching for in life can only be found by placing your hope in the fact that God’s way of living will pay off in the end.
Life is not about what is coming next. This mind sets only leads to trouble in the present. Practice living with Jesus, the great I AM, by focusing on Him and putting His truths into action today.
