It's imortant for us as believers to live in the moment. Living in the moment requires us to stop being focused on the past or fixated on the future, and to ask “what is God doing now?” It also requires us to look at the physical circumstances we find ourselves in today, and ask God
1) What are you saying to me in these circumstances?
2) How do you want me to respond to these circumstances?
3) How do I extend your kingdom in these circumstances?
Another key to becoming a person who lives in the moment is the fire of and fellowship with the Holy Spirit of God who lives in us as believers. Jesus needed the Father to live in the moment. We need the Holy Spirit. We need His fire to empower us, give us energy, and passion to get the job done every day. But we also need His fellowship.
In 2 Corinthians 13: 14 the Apostle Paul says, “May the grace of Jesus, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” The word fellowship means intimacy. The question I have is how are you gonna be led by the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, have intimacy with the Spirit, if you’re not praying with the Spirit. Praying with the Spirit is your connection with the Father. It’s how you see what the Father’s doing. It’s how you hear what the Father’s saying. It’s how you live in the moment.
So….ask yourself “what is God doing now?” Look at the physical circumstances you find yourself in today. And receive the fire and walk in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. As you do these things you will begin to make the shift from focusing on the past, and being fixated on the future, and you’ll become a person who lives in the moment.
