Learn to Take Life As It Comes

Learn to Take Life As It Comes

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:34(KJV)

Like most people, I resist things I don’t like that I can’t really do anything about. One day the Lord said to me, ‘Joyce, learn to take life as it comes.’

I believe this is a lesson for all of us. What He was saying to me was that I needed to stop fighting the things I could do nothing about.

If we are traveling somewhere and suddenly find ourselves in heavy traffic due to an accident or bad weather, it doesn’t do any good to resist it. Only time or God’s supernatural intervention will change the situation. Why not relax and try to find some way to enjoy the time?

God has equipped us to handle life as it comes, which is why He tells us to only focus on today. He knows that if we spend time worrying about issues beyond our control, we will become tired and frustrated.

You don’t need to waste time trying to change and control things outside your power. Set your mind to what God has placed in front of you and let Him take care of the rest.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I realize that I can’t control everything, but I can trust You. Right now, I make a decision do my best with what You’ve given me and leave the rest to You.
