As we begin this brand new day, we can find it so easy to become involved in the moments that seem to hit us head on. Our minds can become so connected to everything that may be going wrong at the moment; that we soon find that our thoughts and hearts have been completely side-tracked, from a God who can truly bring us through these difficult times.
In 2 Timothy 2:4, we read… “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” If someone is headed off to war, I would think that the first thing this soldier would aim to do; would be to focus on the one who is in charge, rather than becoming involved in the affairs of a war that they don’t fully understand. It only makes sense that if this soldier wasn’t willing to follow his commander; then he could fall into all kinds of dangerous traps that may not only harm him but others too.
In a similar way, when we choose to become tangled up in moments that we really don’t fully understand; then these moments can possibly lead us into more trouble; then what we may be experiencing already.
As we walk through this day, we need to take our problems and the things that we may face during the day; to the One who sees and knows all things. We may know what is before us; but God can see what’s happening way down the road, which can keep us from walking through moments of needless suffering.
No matter what you face in this day…take it to God and let Him walk you through the difficult times, rather than getting caught up in the affairs, of a problem that may only lead to further problems down the road.
