Living in the moment!

Abba, in today’s world, everyone works and seeks those things in the future.

Because vision is cast toward a five-year goal(s) or beyond, emphasis is on working or pressing on in those things that will draw us closer to the mark.

In this mindset, we can often miss the smaller things in life You have designed to bring joy and satisfaction to a life well-lived for You.

This is not a knock against planning and goals, but a call to everyone to live in the moment each day.

We can have goals and dreams, but Proverbs 16:9 says that our heart plans our way, but the Lord directs our steps.

Also, Proverbs 19;21 declares that there are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the Lord’s counsel–that will stand.

Plans and dreams are wonderful, but unless they are subjected to You, they may become a source of frustration. Show us how to live in the moment.

Give us discernment so as to hear the guidance of Your Holy Spirit. Build in us the wisdom to trust in You with all our heart, and lean not on our own understanding.

But in all our ways, let us acknowledge You and You shall direct our paths. This is why the secret place is so vital. The secret place is where we gain Your insight and wisdom.

Here You unpack revelation knowledge for us. Proverbs 29:18 declares, “Where there is no revelation (prophetic vision), the people cast off restraint.”

When society lacks Your divine insight, that society heads toward anarchy.

Abba, let us come humbly to You with our plans and thoughts. May we be humble enough to live in the moment, and not miss Your divine appointments or opportunities.

For better is one day in Your courts (presence), than thousands elsewhere!

In the name of Jesus, we pray! Amen!

Have a great and God-filled day! Shalom!
