“Don’t live frozen in the glory of some distant memory or in the promise of some faraway future. Make the most of every moment TODAY.”
Think about that statement …
We only have this moment right now. The truth is, our past is gone and we are not guaranteed a tomorrow.
Seek to live life awake and fully present, instead of allowing regrets, distractions or even hopes to interfere with what God is calling us to do TODAY.
Ephesians 5:15-17 says, So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do (NLT).
… be intentional in the way that you live, realizing that every breath is a gift from God!
What if we actually lived the radical life of faith we hear about every Sunday?
Imagine if we lived according to what we profess to believe …
Imagine the conversations we would finally have, the acts of kindness that we would do, the inconveniences that we would endure, the places we would go, the money that we would give, the serving that we would commit to, the forgiveness we would extend, the words of affirmation we would offer, the prayers we would pray, the offences we would forgo and the people we would reach!
First Corinthians 2:5 says … your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God (NKJV).
Imagine. Great things happen when we activate our faith and trust in Him!
If you feel that God is silent, ask yourself when the last time was that you opened His Word.
He has something to say to us every day if we will choose to listen.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)
