Manna For Today: Monday, July 17, 2017
James 4:13-16 – 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.” 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. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.
It’s a wonderful thing to make and have a plan but never do it without God. The Bible tells us that our lives are but a mist when compared to eternity; that’s very little time. Place an ‘if’ in the plans for your life and in doing so allow God to direct your plans via His purpose for your life.
When we fail to include God in our plans we suggest to Him and others we are in charge of our future. God refers to our empty boasting as evil. Involve God in your plans today and whatever He has told you to do, do it now!
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
