Living in the Moment

Divider
As for man, his days are like grass…for the wind passes over it, and it is gone.

Psalm 103:15-16


How you ever been challenged to live in the moment? We’re so accustomed to wanting our happy days to last forever and our sad ones to go by as quickly as possible. However, as a child of God—our every single moment on earth has been designed specifically for us.

The Lord knows the number of the hairs on our head. He knew the day of our birth and knows the day when we will take our last breath. There’s nothing good or bad that happens to us that He’s not intimately acquainted with.
The question is asked in Job 7:17-18 “What is mankind that you make so much of them, that you give them so much attention, that you examine them every morning and test them every moment?

Isn’t it something that God examines us every morning? His testing isn’t to give us a good or bad grade, but rather to reveal the glory that is within each of us in the moment. The glory of God is exposed when we are pressed and the fragrance of Christ rises up around us. Those we live with, work with, and those we worship with will take in the aroma of Jesus.

Yet how many times we resist the molding and shaping that happens when we face various trials and temptations? We want those moments to move swiftly from our midst—but doing so skips one of the most important steps in your spiritual growth…perseverance.

There’s so much more to us than what is on the surface. There’s a rich, deep reservoir of maturity that wells up within the believer who willingly embraces the moments of testing like a courageous soldier of Christ.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to live in the moments that are gifts from You. Teach me to be still and trust even when days are difficult. Amen.

In His Service,
