Step by Step, Moment by Moment

Some people follow the motto, "One Day at a Time." But we need to go for one moment at a time, because one day can present too many unforeseen problems. Just take your next breath with God. Take the next step with Him. Speak your next word through Him. Receive your next thought from God. That's all! It is just a series of moments. And as we take each breath, He gives the inspiration of the manifestation of His presence (Isaiah 60:19).

Psalm 49 speaks of those who receive honor from their fellow men and who trust in their riches. But their end is destruction: "Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling" (Psalm 49:14). God's people have been given dominion for all of eternity over those who are trusting in temporal honor and riches.

We don't covet what others have, but God wants to take away from the devil and give to God's people, to use it for God's Kingdom. That way, a ministry can grow and go into all the world, preach the Gospel to every creature, and make disciples of men.
