His grace is sufficient for every day.…the thought struck me anew as I sat pondering the days ahead. Life is good and so sweet, but I still worry at times. I wonder how I’ll be able to accomplish everything I want to do. I wonder about the years ahead and what they hold for me. The future is uncertain. Life is full of “what if’s.” It’s easy to become doubtful. It is easy to get caught up in what could happen instead of trusting in the goodness of God.
It’s a hard thing to do. I am tempted to be anxious, but then I remember that God has numbered my days. He has placed me exactly where I am at now. He directs my very steps in the first place. He hems me in, behind and before. In Christ, He loves me more than I can imagine. Not for a moment will He forsake me.
I love this prayer by Elisabeth Elliot:
Lord, give to me a quiet heart
That does not ask to understand
But confident steps forward
In the darkness guided by Thy hand
His grace is sufficient for each day. There will be new mercies for tomorrow, so don’t try to conserve today’s grace. May we not lose sight of the goal and may we press on with a quiet heart in the strength that God supplies, living each day to its fullest for the glory of God!
