Trust Jesus One Day at a Time
By Rick Warren

“Don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 (NCV)

There are two days you should never worry about: yesterday and tomorrow.

Jesus said, “Don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34 NCV).

You can’t live in the past. You can’t live in the future. You can only live today. 

Why should you only live one day at a time? First, when you worry about tomorrow’s problems, you miss the blessings of today. Second, you cannot solve tomorrow’s problems with today’s power. When tomorrow arrives, God will give you the power, perspective, grace, and wisdom you need.

When I was a kid, I didn't worry about anything I needed in my life. Instead, I just went to my dad or mom and told them what I needed. I was never once concerned about how they were going to meet our needs because they took on that responsibility. 

God wants you to be the same way with him.

Matthew 6:30 says, “If God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you?” (TLB)

When you worry, you assume responsibility that God never intended for you to have. You may be worrying today about a lot of things that are really God's responsibility. In fact, every time you worry, it's a warning that you’re playing God and that you believe it all depends on you. You’re acting like you don't have a heavenly Father who will feed and lead and meet your needs.

The Bible does not say, “Give us this day our weekly bread.” It says, “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11 ESV).

God wants you to depend on him one day at a time. He will provide everything you need—for today. Because he is a good God, you can trust that you will lack nothing.

It’s okay to plan for tomorrow. But don’t worry about it! Trust God for each day as it comes.
