Recently, an NFL coach when being interviewed, was asked what he thought he would do if his team got to the Super Bowl.
His response was that he was not concerned about the Super Bowl, but about the next game at hand. He said it is the journey to the Super Bowl that one needs to enjoy instead of worrying about the major event before it was time.
In Genesis 1, God could have easily created the whole universe at once but He instead chose to go through a seven-day process, each day stopping to compliment and celebrate what he had created, saying it was good!
He is God who determines the end from the beginning; yet even with such knowledge, He chose to go through the process.
Many times in life, we tend to worry about the future and live our lives, missing the “now” moments.
Yet God has secured our future in Him and lets us go through a process to refine us and make us more like Him.
Maybe it’s time for us to sit back and enjoy the “now” moments God has given us.
The breath you just took; your friend, family, or spouse; the job you have right now; the day you are living in right now; and many more.
Life is better lived when you live it giving thanks for your “now” moments because those moments are already here.
The past is gone, the future is not certain, but “now” is here!
Our final outcome is already determined. Enjoy the journey!
