Christians need to focus on the grace they are given today rather than the “what-if’s” of tomorrow, Pastor Joel Osteen says.
Osteen, senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, wrote in a recent blog post that although we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, we do know that God is in charge and therefore we can simply focus on the grace He has given us for today.
“The key is: Don’t miss today because you’re worried about tomorrow. Today is a gift. We can never get this day back. I believe many of the things you’re worried about are not going to happen. If they do, it’s not going to be as difficult as you think,” the megachurch pastor writes.
Osteen adds that we have to be careful of dwelling too much on the “what-if’s” in life, especially because most of them don’t even come to pass.
“The truth is, if a ‘what if’ does come to pass, God will give you the grace to handle it,” the megachurch pastor says. “God promises He will arm you with strength for every battle. We may not know what the future holds, but we do know who holds the future.”
