Today. One day. Not tomorrow, not yesterday. We need to remember to take it “one day at a time.” In Exodus 16, God introduced manna to the people of Israel as they journeyed from Egypt to the Promised Land. This food supply was given “one day at a time,” no more and no less. Everyone had enough, and when they tried to horde it, it would spoil. The same is true for us, and it is a lot more than just food. God has given us this day, with all of its blessings, and he will sustain us through daily bread. Jesus said, “Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:34). When you wake up in the morning and take that first, intentional breath, remember: “One day at a time, God has given this one to me.”
Taking it one day, one breath, at a time with you!
