Have you ever heard the saying “here today, gone tomorrow”? Money, happiness, and material things are often here today and gone tomorrow, which means that they don’t last very long. I can think of very few things in life that really last. The Bible compares even our very life to a “vapor”. When looking at the big picture, most of what we have is here today, gone tomorrow, but I can think of one priceless thing that is here today and will be here tomorrow.
Hebrews 4:7 says that “God keeps renewing His promise and setting the date as today”. This means we can cash in on His promises every day! Just take a moment to think of a few of these incredible promises. Proverbs tell us that as we acknowledge Him, He (Yahweh, the faithful covenant keeping God) will direct our paths. Philippians tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Psalms says that as we wait on the Lord, He will strengthen our heart. The promises are countless. He promises to meet our every need emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually and these promises are for you, right now, no matter what you’re facing! Hebrews 6:18 says that “God can’t break His word and because His word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable”.
Isn’t it great to be reminded that every promise of God is available to us each and every day? It’s no wonder why the writer of Hebrews says in chapter six, “We have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go”. From now on, when you hear the idiom “here today, gone tomorrow”, I hope you will quickly think of the rich promises of God that are, in fact, “here today, here tomorrow”!
Lord, thank you for your promises. Help me to apply them to my life today so that I can reap the benefits that you offer to those who are obedient to You. Thank you that they are not just promises for today, but they are unchangeable and they never expire!
