Davidisms - You Can't Use Yesterday's Faith for Tomorrow's Problems
Do you awaken each morning with a renewed sense of hope? Or do you often dread the day ahead? Wondering what new hardship may come your way. Feeling defeated before your day begins. If you begin your day with worry - stop it! Here’s how: Choose to renew your faith every single day. Because you can’t use yesterday’s faith for tomorrow’s problems. God’s steadfast love never ceases, and his mercies are new every morning (Lam. 3:22). If you believe that, then God will give you enough grace for today. Consider the Israelites. They had to gather manna from heaven, angel’s food, each morning. If they tried to hoard it for tomorrow, it would spoil (Ex. 16:20). God was teaching them the importance and necessity of daily reliance on him. It’s a truth we all must learn. Jesus said it this way, “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matt. 6:11). Bread is God’s provision for his people each and every day. Choose to awaken each morning relying on God’s loving faithfulness and his covenant promises to you. Ask him for the grace you will need today to address every issue you will face. Because you can’t use yesterday’s faith for tomorrow’s problems.
