Today is “too’s day”.
We can be encouraged that every day, no matter what we might face, can be too’s day when we turn to the Lord and to one another for support, guidance, love, and encouragement. No matter what happens, we always have God’s truth to hold onto.
Here’s an example of how my Monday was a too’s day…….
I woke up with a headache, and I was tempted to act pretty cranky. But then I remembered: There’s this too………………
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”1 Corinthians 10:13
Then, I was running late and felt a little bit stressed. But then I remembered: there’s this too…..
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
Later on in the day, I felt attacked a bit. But then I remembered: there’s this too…..
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
No matter what happens, whether it is some small annoyance or a serious and tragic event, we always have this too…..
Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.
Yes, we can always praise Him too. No matter what day of the week, no matter what moment or circumstance. We can always praise Him.
And He will never forsake us or leave us.
That’s good to know “too.”
“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
