Now, is a moment in time; it is here and gone…. minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, etc are made up of moments. Time is not a renewable resource; it is a precious gift. God wants to teach us to live “IN the NOW”. Living in the NOW means that yesterday is gone, and is a fragrance of memory. Today is a gift; we have the privilege to look to Christ before anything or anyone. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Living in the Now is being attentive to the personal move of God now, not in what might be. Wasting time is prevalent, especially when we are not meeting God in the moment. Thankfulness connects us to the NOW life; worshiping God brings heaven to earth.
Goals and visions have their place, but if future plans steal from today then we miss vital heart preparation. As we follow Christ today, moment by moment, He will be faithful to lead us to His perfect will. In Obedience we discover His abundant life – In the moment.
“I was so captured by what could be that I missed what was now. I was looking far ahead and I missed your visitation. I brushed away what I thought was an insignificant and seeming interruption, and it was You, Lord. This privileged visit was disguised, and in my presumptuous multitasking I missed your still small voice. You beckon me to a quiet place, where my shoes come off and nothing is in my hands. Stillness trumps my soul. You have my attention and my heart; teach me to delight in the moment.” (JFM)
Journey with Christ, agree with Him in what He says; this ministers to Him. As we minister to Him the overflow goes to others. Enjoy Jesus in your moments.
