Do you feel your current struggles are so intense that there’s no way you’ll have the strength to deal with the problems of tomorrow?
If you feel this way, then you’re right – you don’t have the strength.
While God promises to give us manna for each day – He never says the bread for today will be enough to satisfy us tomorrow. But before you despair – it’s crucial you read below and remember all God has said.
In our limited human minds, we spend time worrying about tomorrow – anxious that we won’t be able to handle what comes our way.
But all throughout Scripture, God has shown He is faithful to His children – and that He is with them in the fire supplying all that they need.
So each day you wake up, as a follower of Jesus Christ, you can be confident that God will give you exactly what you need to get through the day…
… but nothing more.
You don’t yet need the “strength for tomorrow” as tomorrow hasn’t arrived.
But as you sleep, you can rest peacefully knowing that tomorrow God will once again supply all you need – as His mercies are new each day.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
While this may seem like a simple concept – the magnitude of what is being said should serve as a soothing balm to your weary soul.
Without a shadow of a doubt, God has guaranteed His mercies are made new every morning.
His grace, forgiveness, mercy, and wisdom don’t expire when night comes – but are made fresh each day.
Of course, for those of us who like to “plan ahead” – it can still make us feel anxious that we don’t know how we’re going to survive our current crisis.
It’s in this moment we must remember our faith does not always show us the full picture – sometimes it’s a moment-by-moment act of trusting in Him.
But if you continue to do the next right thing, you’ll be amazed at how God will show up in your life.
While you may not yet have the manna for tomorrow – you have His promises to hold onto for today.
And remember, when you feel weak – that is when He is strong.
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
And during these times of economic hardship for many families, if you’ve been anxious about how you’ll be able to feed and clothe your family, know that God will take care of you – even if you don’t know how yet.
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:25-33
So if you’re feeling downcast today – cast your anxieties and fear to God – and sleep easy knowing that if God grants us tomorrow, His mercies will be made new.
