Live In The Now

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22–23

Live in the now. Don’t live in the future by asking, “What if…” and don’t live in the past by saying, “If only…” Don’t waste your present moments.

If you’re spending time with a loved one, enjoy the moment. Don’t worry about that project deadline.

“Pastor Prince, if I don’t worry, then I’m not being responsible.”

Well, let’s look at your idea of “responsibility.” If you’re worried now about next week’s responsibility as you spend time with your loved one, your loved one will not get the best of you because you are there physically but mentally, you are miles away!

Secondly, when next week comes, your worrying won’t put you in a good state of mind to handle that responsibility well.

Beloved, to believe that by worrying you are being responsible is to believe a lie from the enemy!

Jesus wants you worry free, anxiety free and carefree—every day (Matthew 6:25–34, Philippians 4:6–7, 1 Peter 5:7)! Why? Because He is there to supply you with whatever you need.

Do what you need to do, but refuse to worry and live each day like a child. Live in the now, enjoying every precious moment you’ve been given because you have a faithful heavenly Father who will take good care of you!

    I really needed this message pastor Prince. I have been struggling to find a new job after our team got displaced and have found a role that I really want as it will offer flexibility for me to still care for my kids. I finally have an interview for it next week. Ive had so many bad experiences that I am being tortured and consumed with worry telling me that I am not good enough and that the hiring people will not like me. please pray for me and my interview next week. Thank you for all your messages. You give people like me hope and encouragement when Im consumed with fear, guilt and worry. God bless you more.

    I like prayer to stay set in my faith that He will rescue all six of my children and all grandchildren. As a Christian mom I feel like I’ve failed . Drugs and alcohol addictions my sons have suffered from , as well as jail time due to theirs addictions. My girl’s have to also commit to the Lord. They know head knowledge but it need to go to the heart regeneration. May the Lord please rescue them. All
