Do not boast of tomorrow

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.”

James 4:13-15

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.

Romans 14:8

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.

    DO NOT BOAST OF TOMORROW

    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.”
    James 4:13

    It is something characteristic of human beings to attempt to and do business matters thinking only in their ways, possibilities or means to do it. They boast of it and don’t think that there is a Sovereign God who manages men, women and everything.
    We are dependant on the weakness of our bodies, and all the inconvenience of things which surround us on earth.

    The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalm 24:1

    If the earth is the Lord’s, men women, and all creation is in the hands of Him, including governors, presidents, the staff in all organizations, seas, water, fire, earthquakes and so on…
    “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turns it wherever he will.
    Proverbs 21:1

    In recent times, we have heard about tremendous movements of sea waters, earthquakes, volcanos which have devastated towns, beaches and interior grounds, houses that have been destroyed, people that have died everywhere.
    Those losses and casualties may be numbered into the thousands.

    We do not know, but we can think that these events do not happen just by chance and that’s all. Some people say:” “the earth is irritated, or the volcano is angry”.
    It is possible? I think, it is not..
    It is not, if we believe in God’s Word that tell us
    “he turns it wherever he will.”

    I think it is better to think that it is God who is in anger, irritated…
    Why may it be that God is anger?
    Because men and women of the earth have forgotten the Lord God is present and…
    Everyone must take the Will of God into account, and we must not to plan without thinking on Him, that he exists.

    We all are dependant on Him and everyone ought to look for the Lord God in repentance and beg for forgiveness for their sin.

    The Lord Jesus Christ says: Come to me so that you may live, and I will rise you up for Life in the last day.
