Don’t Assume That Tomorrow Will Come
The routines of a day or week are like an anesthesia that leaves us numb to the possibilities of today and assuming the dull routine of tomorrow. The assumptions of the Bible are quite different. We are to assume that today God has placed many open doors before you because today is a gift. Do not worry about or assume anything about tomorrow.
James understood this when he wrote:
James 4:13-15 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.”
Unless God wills, tomorrow may never come. This is the day the Lord has made, be joyful for today!
