One of my favorite Southern Baptist preachers, Johnny Hunt, once said that the only time he ever gets headaches is when he finds himself trying to fight today’s battles with tomorrow’s strength.
I think Pastor Johnny was quoting another pastor when he said it. Come to think of it, the idea originated with Jesus:
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” -Matthew 6:34
God supplies all the strength we need to do all that He’s called us to do.
But He rations this strength much in the same way He rationed manna to the children of Israel.
He provides sufficient strength each day for the challenges of that day…and that day only. This strength doesn’t carry over from one day to the next. You either use it, or lose it.
