Just for Today

Just for Today

A worried woman gazes out a window
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’—Matthew 6:31 NIV
It's easy to get worked up about what might happen in the future: Will I have enough money to retire? Will I become ill? Yet all you need to do is ask for what you need today. As Jesus pointed out in Matthew, “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him” (Matthew 6:8). Trust God with your needs today, this day. That is enough.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, help me face the future with courage, knowing that You have my needs covered today.
