Only Today

This is the day The Lord Has made.
The Lord?
Yesterday perhaps could claim your craft
or hopefully tomorrow, but not today,
this disappointing day so filled with problems, needs, despair and doubt.
This is the day the Lord has made
and making it He'll give me strength and hope to take me through.
This is the day the Lord has made
so I'll be glad and I'll rejoice in it.

--- Joseph Bayly

It's only a day. Life changes by the moment, so don't lose heart. When you do these kinds of days go into weeks and months. Don't look with your physical eyes, look with your spiritual eyes.

In 2 Kings 6, Ben-Hada, an Aramean king was at war with Israel. His military methods were being found out and he was told that the prophet, Elisha, was responsible. So he sent troops out to capture him. They surrounded the city and when Elisha's servant looked out and saw them, he hurried to Elisha, saying, "Oh, my Lord, what shall we do?" Elisha responded, "Don't be afraid. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."

Elisha saw with his spiritual eyes and saw "the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha."

Even in our darkest hours, God has us surrounded. Our problems are not too big for Him. He sees something good in it all and will mold it into you if you allow Him to. Don't get bitter or angry. Have spiritual vision and by faith, with God's provision, we will always come through the battles victoriously.

Those that are with us are more than those who are with them!
