One of the biggest hindrances to fully utilising our today, is our past! Our past comes with much baggage, and if we try to drag this baggage into the future, regardless of how precious it may be, it will hold us back. Your past is exactly that, your past. The beauty of the past is that it is over, and no one can change what happened there, but we can pause, look back for a moment, and then turn to look into the rising sunshine of today and all it promises.
Isaiah 43:18-19 'Do not call to mind the former things or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.'
TOMORROW NEVER COMES!
In our culture there is a phrase that is often used: 'Tomorrow is another day!' The implication is that we don't need to be concerned or under pressure, because there is always tomorrow. We can see tomorrow as another chance or opportunity to achieve what we did not achieve today. But the truth of the matter is that tomorrow never really comes. When tomorrow comes, it is another today, with its own tomorrow still lying ahead. Today is actually all we are sure of. Tomorrow is just another hope and another promise, of another today. For this reason, it is important to realise how important today is.
Proverbs 27:1 'Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.'
