Strengthening Thots: Faith for Today

It’s today that you have to have faith for. It’s today that God has provided the strength for. “As thy days, so shall thy strength be.” (Deu.33:25) God gives you power for the hour, grace for the trials—at the hour and when it comes—not before. You don’t have to have faith for tomorrow, today. If you trust God and have faith, then you know your Heavenly Father loves you and He’s going to take care of you and yours.

Jesus said, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.” (Mat.6:34) That’s a commandment. It’s not optional. It’s not something that’s just good advice—it’s an order. When tomorrow comes, God will take care of it.

I have nothing to do with tomorrow.
My Saviour has made that His care.
Its grace and its strength I can’t borrow,
So why should I borrow its care?
—Major D. W. Whittle

‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word.
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, ‘Thus saith the Lord.’

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him,
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er.
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus,
Oh for grace to trust Him more!
—Louisa M. R. Stead
