PRACTICAL CHRISTIANITY: HOW TO FACE TOMORROW
How many times have you made future plans, only to have them fall apart? The fact is, life is unpredictable. There are no guarantees that everything is going to work out as we plan. The apostle Paul writes about his plan to visit with the Thessalonian church on several occasions, but was stopped by Satan each time (1 Thessalonians 2:18). So, yes, even missionary plans can be thwarted.
That’s why James writes that when we make plans, we need to seek the “will of God”. In other words, make sure that God is in your plans. While seeking God’s will if things don’t always work out as we planned, we don’t fret or worry about it because we know that God has something else in mind. Our future is in His hands, and we place our complete trust in Him.
The old hymn says, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone; because I know He holds the future. And life is worth living, just because He lives.”
Come join us this Sunday as we study what James says about “TOMORROW.”
