Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
Proverbs 27:1 (ESV)
Hey everyone, It’s Wednesday have you started your plans for the weekend yet? My day off each week is Friday and usually, by Wednesday I am beginning to think about what I want to do on Friday, other than sleep in. We all are prone to plan ahead and think about the future. In our Proverb of the day (Proverbs 27:1) reminds us that we really don’t know what is coming. I don’t think that the proverb author is anti-planning, but I think his goal is to remind us that we are not the ones who control time or history. The future is held only by God.
Do you think about this as you plan your days? The time to come is not at our disposal to be used as we desire, but to be used as God would have us use our days. I struggle with letting God into my calendar, but I know that when I ask what His priorities are for my days, my days are far more fulfilling. Don’t get me wrong even my best prayed through days are never quite as I planned, and I have yet to predict my future, let alone my next day.
So let’s learn to yield each day to the Lord and when the day is done give thanks for the day and set our heart at ease about tomorrow knowing that the Lord goes into the new day with us.
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
