"Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we're proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, ‘Light up the darkness!' and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful. If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That's to prevent anyone from confusing God's incomparable power with us."
(2 Corinthians 4:5-7 – The Message)
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because I know that God uses ordinary people like me to do extraordinary things!
Today I will remember that the Kingdom is "at hand" — it is within my reach, in my everyday experiences. It is here, where I am, and God wants to take what I already have in my hand, and turn it into a key of the Kingdom!
Today I will look for the significant and profound things to be revealed within the context of the familiar and recognizable ("And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘THIS is My body . . . likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, ‘THIS cup is . . . My blood . . ." Luke 22:19, 20). I will seek a revelation today of the power of understanding what "THIS" is for me in the now.
Today I will lay my little limited lunch of loaves and fish at the feet of Jesus so that He can feed thousands by multiplying my finite resources! He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and, as I follow Him closely, He will turn the water in my life into the finest wine! And if it seems that He is taking too long in the manifestation of the miracle, it is simply because he is saving the best for last!
Today I will be myself because God wants to use me just as I am!
Today I will not complain about what I don't have, but I will plant seeds of faith, with a vision for the future, expecting a great harvest in my life. God is increasing me as I enter my season of maturity and manifestation.
Today I will allow God to supernaturally make something special out of my simple life. I will do great things today, and today I will live in the now!
Father, use what I have in my hand today for Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name, amen.
