Why do we question God? Are we actively reminding ourselves of what He has already done for us? This is why we must stay present with Him.
It is only when we are present with Him that we can live in the gratitude of what He has done for us. When we live beyond right now it is easy to become consumed with our plans and everything the world throws at us. Rather than what God has done for us.
When we operate from the knowledge of what God has done for us we can stop living in FOMO (fear of missing out). We can stop living in comparison. We can stop living in worry, fear, and anxiety.
This kind of life takes the work of being actively in His presence. It is completely counter to the way the world operates. The world tells us to keep looking for what is next and God tells us it is already done, so rest in Him, and He will show us a life lived through the unforced rhythms of grace. (Matthew 11:28-30 MSG)
Romans 8:32 NIV
Considerations for your planner:
- Do you remind yourself daily of what God has done for you? Write down this scripture or what you know God has done for you. Take this with you through your day.
A Prayer for Our Community:
Father, Help us to stay in the memory of what You have done for us. When we get distracted by the world we lose our focus. Give us the strength and courage to not move the way the world moves. Help us keep our attention on You as this is the constant work we need to be doing. Let us write this scripture in our hearts. You gave up Your own Son for us all. Amen.
