“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: Today if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts, as [happened] in the rebellion [of Israel] and their
provocation and embitterment [of Me] in the day of testing in the wilderness,
Where your fathers tried [My patience] and tested [My forebearance] and
found I stood their test, and they saw My works for forty years.”
“Then while it is [still] called Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion [in the desert, when the people provoked
and irritated and embittered God against them].”
Today is not just another day. Today is the day. We can’t change what happened in our past.
The future is too far away to make any meaningful change. What we have is today.
The Israelites sinned against God in the wilderness. they murmured, they complained,
they doubted, they envied, they tested God. He gave them chance after chance but their
hearts were hardened.
I don’t what your past has been like but know that “Today” the Holy Spirit is calling.
The past is the past. He wants to do something new in your life starting today.
You might be riddled by guilt but TODAY is a new day! The Lord is calling out to you.
Today is our second chance.
We messed up and messed up some more but today is our second chance.
A day can make all the difference when God is involved.
I have made mistakes,
I have made some bad decisions,
I have done a lot of dumb things in my life but as I read this scripture I believe God wanted
me to know today is a new day.
I don’t have to keep looking back at those things.
You don’t have to let the things of the past hold you back any longer.
God is calling you today!
And all you have to do is answer His call.
Don’t let today go to waste. Make the most of it by answering the Holy Spirit. In our own strength,
we will fail but with God, today can be a start of something great!
