Learn to Take Life As It Comes - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 7 October Saturday
So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.
— Matthew 6:34
Like most people, I resist things I don’t like that I can’t really do anything about. One day the Lord said to me, “Joyce, learn to take life as it comes.”
I believe this is a lesson for all of us. What He was saying to me was that I needed to stop fighting the things I could do nothing about.
If we are traveling somewhere and suddenly find ourselves in heavy traffic due to an accident or bad weather, it doesn’t do any good to resist it. Only time or God’s supernatural intervention will change the situation. Why not relax and try to find some way to enjoy the time?
God has equipped us to handle life as it comes, which is why He tells us to only focus on today. He knows that if we spend time worrying about issues beyond our control, we will become tired and frustrated.
You don’t need to waste time trying to change and control things that are outside of your control. Set your mind to do what God has placed in front of you and let Him take care of the rest.
