We all make plans, we all have goals and we want to accomplish something in life, and we strive for it, and all this is well, then, the man who behaves in this way implies that he has direction and responsibility before life. But, the incorrect thing is to think about doing all this without putting it in the hands of God. There are many men in the history of humanity who have made plans without God and others have been more daring and have said: “Even God can not stop me”. Dear brother, in the following paragraphs we will see how important it is to put our plans in the hands of God.
The apostle James said:
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”
14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
The truth is that our lives are in the hands of God, we do not know when we will leave this earth. Life is like the waves of the wind, at the moment they are here and they end up vanishing, the life of man is like that of an ant, which goes on its way and suddenly it is stepped on by anything and that’s where its life ended. The same happens with us, we are born but we do not know when our life is going to end and that is why we should not boast about tomorrow, we should not make plans without thinking about God, without giving thanks for our achievements.
I believe that in the life of each believer each phrase must be accompanied by a: “If the Lord wants, we will live and we will do this or that”. That is what it is about beloved brothers, and it is as the Apostle Paul said:
If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
Let us live for the glory of God and put all our plans in the hands of God and I assure you that in this way we will have a life blessed in the Lord Jesus Christ.
