Living Now

Do not say, “Why were the old days better than theses?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.  Ecclesiastes 7:10

Most of us remember the past better than it was or maybe we want the prices of the past with the salaries of today.

In truth most do not wish to go back to no air-condition, no fast food, no central heat, and many of the other things we have become so conditioned to.

As a spiritual lesson maybe God is seeking to teach us to stretch out, to reach new goals, and to seek new challenges? Then you meet the person who when giving their testimony can only speak of the past for they have nothing in the now to give heart to their ministry.

God does not want us to return to Egypt, not to the wilderness, not even to the mount of the commandments.  He wants us to move into today, living now, serving now, and brining others into the now of His presence.

God desires for us to be able to say, not what God did a long time ago in my life but what He is doing now?  How He is blessing and how I am seeking still to follow Him and yes, even to improve in my spiritual walk.
