Strength for Today Only
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Look, I’m going to rain down food from heaven for you. Each day the people can go out and pick up as much food as they need for that day. I will test them in this to see whether or not they will follow my instructions. ~ Exodus 16:4
I’m more afraid of the imaginings of my mind toward the future than I am in a current situation of trouble. That’s because I have God’s manna (strength) for today’s trouble but I don’t have God’s strength for my perceived problems of tomorrow. I can’t eat manna for tomorrow. It’s impossible. And I don’t even need to eat manna for tomorrow because often when tomorrow comes, there’s not even a glimpse of my imaginings.
