“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
I love that quote. I love the sentiment and the truth there.
The Bible says,
“Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” – Psalm 30:5b
And I’m glad of that too. I’m thankful for the truth of God’s word.
You know, yesterday kicked my rear. It was hard.
Fuss, fear, failure, fret… so many parts of it was difficult. It’s one of the days that I am glad have passed. I look back on it and think about ways I could have handled things differently. How I could have stopped and prayed instead of letting the flesh take over and getting frustrated. I shed many a tear yesterday and last night.
Compared to many, the issues of my day may sound VERY trivial and insignificant… but to me, they hurt, they were concerning, and they were a time of testing. A test that I bombed.
But I want you to know something.
Just because I bombed yesterday, it doesn’t mean I will bomb today.
I mean, I might… but I’m eagerly, prayerfully, aware-fully going to head into today ready for battle.
The enemy wants to steal, kill, and destroy.
And the thing that he wants to destroy most is your testimony and your family.
Do NOT, even for one brief second believe that he is not out for your family…
Families are being destroyed right and left everywhere.
So Moma… be on your guard.
Get in The Word daily. Don’t forget, don’t get lax, don’t get so busy that you don’t have time for a daily dose. This is your battle gear. This is your armor!
Clothe yourself with the armor of the Lord to fight for your family today!
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Don’t let yesterday’s failures determine todays success. Today is the Lord’s. Give it to Him. Give your all to The Lord and your family. You CAN succeed with your children. You CAN teach them. You CAN accomplish what God has set before you. You CAN love your husband and honor him. You CAN care for your family. YOU CAN!
The Lord is fighting for you, you just have to allow Him to lead. Give it to Him.
I don’t know what you are going through, and this post was a reminder for myself. But if you are struggling today, I pray it is an encouragement to you as well. You are able! You are an overcomer!
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Jesus doesn’t start something He doesn’t intend to finish! He gave you the strength to start… He will supply what you need to finish strong!
A brand new day is laid before you. A blessing in and of itself…
Get into The Word, pray and go forth.
Be encouraged, Chas.
