It’s a new day and it’s like a new leg on the journey along life’s road. We know not what a day might bring— what duty will call, what difficulty might present itself, what danger we might face, what defeats we might encounter, or what delights we might experience. It is a mystery. To avoid the fear of the unknown we must consider what we do know. And Christians know enough that they can bravely face the unknown.
Because of who we are and what we have in Christ we can rejoice. We also can rest as we rely upon Him for every need, knowing what He promised He will provide. He who is “the Way” will direct our steps. He who is a “Friend that sticketh closer than a brother” will never leave us. He who is the Wisdom of God will counsel us. He who has all power in heaven and earth is for us. Indeed we have no way of knowing what a day may hold, but due to Christ we can face it with confidence. We know we are in good hands and shall be well cared for. So we forge ahead knowing He is able and willing to meet our needs. We have then no need to worry.
God already knows what the future holds. He has a plan for each of us and the power to complete it. Don’t be shocked by surprises–God is never surprised, confused, or helpless. Whatever comes your way, He is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” ( Eph. 3:20). Knowing God is able enables us. Knowing God cares relieves us of our cares. Now you are ready for the day! Be thankful for it and make good use of it—you won’t pass this way again!
