The Power of Today
By Chris Hart
We can’t change the past and we can’t predict the future. Today is what we can control and dictate. Today is what we have currently been given to steward. Today we can decide to build on our past and direct our future. Where you currently are is most assuredly not where you will always be. However, our future is contingent upon being faithful with where we are and being the best we can be in the current season we are in.
We can create greatness today. That is what will attract and ensure promotion and opportunity.
Don’t look past the moment and dream about a hypothetical future. The tasks at hand could very well be the vehicle that actually provides the horsepower to make the future what you are dreaming of it being!
Moses is an interesting example of this. He has one moment with God and everything changes.
God speaks to him and assures Moses that he can do what is being asked of him.
1 But Moses protested again, “What if they won’t believe me or listen to me? What if they say, ‘The Lord never appeared to you?”(Excuses paralyze action). Then the Lord asked him, “What is that in your hand?” “A shepherd’s staff,” Moses replied. “Throw it down on the ground,”the Lord told him. So Moses threw down the staff, and it turned into a snake! Moses jumped back. Then the Lord told him, “Reach out and grab its tail.” So Moses reached out and grabbed it, and it turned back into a shepherd’s staff in his hand.“Perform this sign,” the Lord told him. “Then they will believe that the Lord, the God of their ancestors—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—really has appeared to you.”
God didn’t ask Moses to do anything out of the ordinary. He asked him to do something he had done 1,000 times – use what was already in his hand! Moses was simply asked to do the natural and then God provided the Supernatural.
