"Today, Not Tomorrow"

"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24
"This is the day which the Lord hath made". The Lord made this day-- today. So many people are living in "tomorrow". They are looking ahead to tomorrow. They are hoping tomorrow will be better. They are excited about some plan that they have made for tomorrow. They are thinking about an appointment that they have tomorrow. There is nothing wrong with preparing for the future, keeping a check on the calendar, or taking care of an upcoming responsibility, but we can't live in tomorrow and neglect today.
All we have is today. We don't have the promise of tomorrow. The Lord has created "this day", He hasn't created your tomorrow for you yet. He sees your tomorrow. He sees your future. He knows the number of your days. But He has not created tomorrow for you or me yet. But He has created today for us. 
So don't live in the past or in the future--- live in today. Enjoy His plan for you today. Today draw near to the Lord. Today be a light and witness for Him. Today love and serve Him. Today walk in His grace and blessings. Enjoy His peace today and don't be anxious about tomorrow. Make full use of today. Don't miss what He has for you today because you long for or are already thinking about tomorrow. 
Have a great day. Don't miss what the Lord wants to do for you today because you are already living in "tomorrow". Live each day to the fullest.
