We Wait He Works

Are you worried about what lies ahead tomorrow? What has you so worried? Is it because things just aren’t going your way? It the worry coming from somewhere deep within your soul? Are you worried about making a mistake in some big area of your job? Are you worried your boss will not be pleased with you and the work you do? Instead of focusing on the stress of each day ahead of you in this earthly life,, you can find peace and joy focusing on your eternal tomorrow.

Are you concerned with what others may think of your work and start judging you on your work? Instead of constantly worrying and thinking about what will happen tomorrow, we should be more focused on having an “eternal tomorrow” with Jesus and God in Heaven. Doesn’t an “eternal tomorrow” sound more appealing than worrying about what will happen in each of our days here on Earth?

Mathew 6: 25-34 says, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”  

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you? You of little faith?  So, do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

This verse specifically tells us not to worry about anything in our lives but it can be very difficult not to worry about things because it is in our human nature to be concerned, concerned about our wellbeing, how we will provide for our family and for our friends. There is also much concern about the things that are happening in our world today. You might ask yourself, “how can I not worry about tomorrow when there is so much at stake?”

But instead of worrying about what will happen tomorrow, we should first start out by thanking Him for another day of our lives and to give us another tomorrow in order to serve Him with everything we have. We may not think of it in that life, all the time because we don’t even know hen our life will end. But instead of worrying about our lives, we should be focused on the “eternal tomorrow” that awaits us in Heaven. When we believe in God, we get salvation freely given to us by God, which means we have a place waiting for us with Jesus when we get to Heaven.

So, instead of freaking out and worrying about how we will get through each day and each tomorrow of our lives here on Earth, we can re-shift our focus to remember and remind ourselves that through faith, we have salvation and have something even more amazing than any of our tomorrows here on Earth. None of our tomorrows here on Earth can even come close to the tomorrow that is waiting for us in Heaven. Let it bring you joy, peace, and excitement to know that you have your Savior and eternity with Him waiting for you, even if your days on earth are long and exhausting. Remember that no matter how bad life here on Earth may get, as you go through each day and every tomorrow, each step gets you closer to being with Jesus in heaven one day.

We should be more focused on our faith and the eternal tomorrow that Jesus provides for us. Jesus loves each of us so much that He willingly died on the cross for us. He suffered unimaginable torture. All to have the chance to give us the privilege of having a chance to come to know Him personally as our Lord and savior and have an “eternal tomorrow” with Him in Heaven.
