"Lord, it is Tomorrow"

July 3, 2003

The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. (Joshua 10:13)

Did you ever have a day that you never wanted to end? It sometimes happens for me when I am having fun. Then again when I am doing something that gives me a lot of self-satisfaction, or when I need more time to finish an exciting project or game. So often tomorrow arrives and I haven't finished yesterday.

The temptation to complain on vacation about tomorrow is great. Tomorrow comes too fast. There is never enough time to do all the exciting things we've planned. Too much time was spent at relatives' houses. So many things caught the attention it wasn't long before a whole day was "lost." No wonder we feel like saying, "Lord it is tomorrow."

Joshua took the problem to the Lord, He asked God to cause the sun to stand still in the sky. He needed God's help with time and overcoming the enemy. "The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day." God helped Joshua in a very special way.

God is not partial about whom He helps. He can help you and me too. He can help us in a very special way to hold on to today. He can help us when we awake in the morning with the thought "Lord, it is tomorrow." God helps us in so many very special ways. He comes to us in the person of His Son, Jesus. Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Faith can make His presence real for us. Lord! It is tomorrow. Good!

PRAYER: Help me, Lord, through your Holy Spirit to keep today and take care of tomorrow. Through Jesus. Amen.
