Jeremiah 32:17

Have you ever felt as if your life is not as terrific as you thought it might be. Even though it should! Is it your fault? And then the question is: should it be almost perfect? Why?

Then, back to reality, the world we are in, a broken world, where we are interacting with people, some are genuinely lovely and sweet but lost, some mean and competing for power, others pretending to be honest are in fact devious and dangerous. Where is the truth? In the worst scenario, everyday you are hit by something. In the best scenario, it happens once a month. Consequently your peace of mind is shattered.. until you remember to call your best friend, I mean the friend who will never let you down or betray you. He won’t even accuse you. Jesus-Christ is this friend.

Because I have everything I need, I am blessed and therefore content, praising the Lord everyday. However at times, things go very wrong. I feel so weak at times. If  I hear that I am useless, I must remember it’s not true. I am worthy because He loves me and He won’t ever let me go.

The thread of living “one day at a time” is woven throughout the fabric of Scripture. God supplied the Israelites with manna daily (Exodus 16:4).

Our heavenly Father’s mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Jesus taught His followers to ask for their “daily bread” (Mt. 6:11) and to refuse to worry about tomorrow (v.34).

It’s a lesson we seem to learn with difficulty, but one that holds the key to life and peace.

When we face a situation that seems overwhelming, we may drift toward hopelessness or despair, wondering how we’ll be able to see it through to the end.

But God’s words of comfort and encouragement remind us that He “daily loads us with benefits” (Psalm 68:19).
