Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof (Matthew 6:34).
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORDS mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness (Lamentations 3:2123). For His anger endureth but a moment; in His favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5).
In His infinite wisdom, God set time in motion at creation, encasing the days tasks between dawn and twilight from the beginning, when the evening and the morning were the first day (Genesis 1:5). In our text verse, He instructs us to take therefore no thought for the morrow, and when time has turned the page on yesterday, we can commit the past to His keeping and usage, knowing that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
Man is but dust (Psalm 103:14) and cannot keep his mind stayed on the Savior while at the same time carrying yesterdays regrets and tomorrows fears. That is why we should carefully number our days (Psalm 90:12), viewing each one as a gift from the One who holds all eternity in His handthe same yesterday, and to day and for ever (Hebrews 13:8).
Let us say with the psalmist: My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up (Psalm 5:3). Proverbs 8:17 says: I [wisdom] love them that love me; and those that seek me early [at dawn] shall find me, and when thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet (Proverbs 3:24).
