Look for today

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.


Proverbs 27:1 (27 kb)




Thoughts
    Humility about the future! We don't control tomorrow. At other times in our lives we may have taken tomorrow for granted; not so anymore. Tomorrow may not come. Tomorrow something horrible could happen. Tomorrow everything we possess could be gone. In the face of these discouraging possibilities, is there anything positive we can hold onto? Absolutely! We know that God holds tomorrow in his hands. We know that because our life is hidden with Christ in God (cf. Col. 3:1-4) our tomorrow is secure. It might not be what we expect. It might not go as we planned. But, it will go as God determines and it will end up with us sharing in his comfort, victory, and glory.

1   So, if all of you have been raised up together with the Christ, continue seeking those things above, where the Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. {Psalm 110:1} 2  Continue thinking about things above, and do not keep thinking about earthly things. 3  For all of you died and your life is carefully concealed with the Christ in union with The God. 4  Whenever the Christ–our Life–becomes visible, then all of you, also, together with him, will become visible in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4 MHM)

Prayer
    Father, my tomorrows all rest in your hands. I ask that I can be useful to you today; courageous enough not to worry about tomorrow, and loyal enough to not waver in my love for you and my commitment to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
