We Can’t Control Tomorrow

Proverbs 27:1 says, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth”

Hello people of God, hope things are moving along as you have planned in 2018.

It sounds kind of odd to say “2018”.  We are in the year of “God given 2018” my prayer is that all the things you have planned and prayed under God’s will it will come through for the glory of God.

We are the creature and God is the creator.

We can’t control tomorrow. On one is assured of a tomorrow because God holds the times and seasons in His hand. Proverbs 16:9 tells us that “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps”.

That is why we need to commit our today and all our future plans into God’s hands. In fact, tomorrow will not dawn for you and for me, one day! James 4:15 says “Let’s bring God into all our plans and pray for His will to be fulfilled in our plans for tomorrow. Only He can control our tomorrow.”

What about your plans for tomorrow? Have you brought the Lord into them? Are you willing to let him change your plans if needed? Of course, if God changes our plans, it will always be for our best. Only He has complete control of tomorrow.

Matthew 6:34  Jesus said. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,…Each day has enough trouble of its own”
