Tomorrow Matters

Part 4 of Making Change
Josh Canizaro

(Ecclesiastes 4:6 NIV) Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.
(John 16:33 NIV) I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
(Acts 20:35 NLT) You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
We over-exaggerate yesterday.
We overestimate tomorrow.
We underestimate today.
Tomorrow Matters
(Hebrews 4:14-16 MSG) Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
1. Ask God for a tomorrow dream.
(Matthew 1:18-21 ESV) Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
(Matthew 7:11 NLT) So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.
2. Take one step toward that dream today.
(Psalm 37:23 NLT) The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.
(Matthew 6:16 MSG) If you 'go into training' inwardly, act normal outwardly.
3. Encourage yourself along the way with great people.
(Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV) And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
4. Celebrate the fulfillment of your God given dreams.
(Hebrews12:11 AMP) To those who have been trained... a harvest of God will result.
