Matthew 6:34 "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today."
I hear, very often, people making the observation that they can't wait until 2020 is over. It seems there is a belief that trouble, and trial, is controlled by the calendar. That, in the grand plan of things, 2020 was appointed to be a time of heartache, despair, and frustration. And, there seems to be a hope that when the clock strikes midnight, on December 31st, life is going to reboot, we will pass GO and collect $200, and the store will always have toilet paper and Lysol. But, that is not what the Bible says. The Word of God is plain, in telling us, that tribulations are not yearly, monthly or weekly, but are to be expected daily. We could get rid of all the covid germs, all of the elections and politics, all of the financial struggles, and there will still be something to cause our plans to be short-circuited and side-lined. It's called life. The question, simply, is if we will face each day alone, or will we face each day holding God's hand? Will we face each day leaning on our own understanding, or will we face it with the calm of knowing God is in control? We may be able to take a vacation from our jobs, but we should never take a vacation from our daily need of the Lord. And, aren't you glad you never have to worry about God being on vacation when we need him most? As the song says, "I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow." So, each day will have it's own bumps and jumps, but the question we should ask is not "what is in your wallet", but "Who is in your heart!" Selah!
