This Moment

2 Corinthians 6:2
"For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." KJV

So often we spend our lives reminiscing about or regretting the past; or conversely, planning for or worrying about the future.  In the passing stream of our lives the only thing we truly hold is this moment.  In this moment we can be untethered from the past and release the future to God.  In 2 Corinthians 6:2 Paul speaks of this truth.  Now is the time that we have the opportunity to submit our lives to God.  Christ frees us from our pasts, as Psalm 103:12 tells us, "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us" (KJV).  When we give our future to Him we have no need to worry, only to rely on Him as Philippians 4:6 exhorts,"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."  With the past at rest and the future promised, we are able to praise God for His goodness and mercy in the moment.  In this place we may rest and be healed.  If you allow God to have your now, He has promised to give you eternity.  This is well-worth the trade off.


Lord, I Jesus' name I pray that You enable us to lay all things down at Your feet.  I pray that You cause us to desire the things that You desire.  I pray that You cause us to realize and understand the gravity of our circumstances and the beauty of Your grace.  Thank You for loving us, for we are very unlovely for the most part.  Thank You for the opportunity to live in and with You eternally.  I love You. Amen.
