Relish The Moment!
“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)”John 10:10 (AMP).
Life is a journey, and while on that journey, it’s important you enjoy the trip and relish every moment. There’s so much God has placed on your way, for you to enjoy as you journey through life. Life is not all about the future or the sweet-by-and-by; God wants you to enjoy today. It’s great to be focused on your journey or the tasks ahead, but while at it, relish the passing moments.
Observe Jesus’ statement in our theme verse:“I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)”(AMP). God wants you to enjoy the life He has given to you because that’s the reason Jesus came in the first place. You have to enjoy every day of your journey in life. If you don’t enjoy yourself, no one will enjoy being around you. Let every moment of your life be pleasurable because God has given you all things freely for the basic purpose of enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17).
If you don’t enjoy the simple little things of life that God has given to you, you really can’t enjoy spiritual realities. So, firstly, start out by appreciating yourself, and then also the people God has placed in your world. Appreciate even the little things as what you wear—your shoes, clothes, jewelleries—etc! Even your devices, such as your mobile phones, relish them; enjoy the features.
You also have to learn to let go of your past experiences, especially the unpleasant ones, and have no fret or fear of tomorrow. The regrets of yesterday and fears of tomorrow are enemies of today’s happiness. God doesn’t live in your yesterday, and He doesn’t triumph in your fears, all He expects of you is to be the best of you and enjoy every moment of your life TODAY!
Dear father, thank you for the great and precious blessings you’ve made available to me to enjoy today. Thank you for loading me daily with all the benefits of life such that I’m thoroughly furnished with all I need to live joyfully today. I thank you for your glory and grace that you’ve bestowed on me to reign in life today and forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
