Are we so consumed with our plans for the future that we’re missing God’s amazing plan for the present? I’m sure I’ve missed some of the greatest blessings God planned for me because I spent my time in frenzied, worried, pursuit of a future that I desired—but He had NOT planned. EVERY plan I’ve pursued that has been outside God’s plan—has FAILED and DISAPPOINTED me!!! And yet—over and over again—I’ve pursued plans without Him!

Kicking this bad habit requires we develop an acute awareness of the immeasurable value of God’s presence. What did that look like for me?

My heart must sing as the Psalmist, “because thy lovingkindness is better than LIFE, my lips shall praise thee.” (Psalms‬ ‭63:3‬)‬‬ I must want God more desperately than I want anything because I KNOW His presence is as essential to my soul—just as oxygen is to my body. When my VIEW of God changes, I begin to enjoy the present—in His presence—because the truth of His Word is worked deep into my soul. The Bible says: “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” (Romans‬ ‭11:33-36‬)

When this is the way we view of God, we live fully and completely in the present. As God’s Spirit guides us, we are able to enjoy the present because we know He has a brilliant future planned. Life is so much more satisfying when we live each day simply asking God, “What do YOU want me to do today?” Live in the blessings of the present and trust God to show you His future!
