God Knows What Lies Ahead

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael Wright @ 10:25 pm

“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will travel to such and such a city and spend a year there and do business and make a profit.’ You don’t even know what tomorrow will bring–what your life will be! For you are a bit of smoke that appears for a little while, then vanishes. Instead, you should say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that'” (James 4:13-15, HCSB).

“As Christians, we are blessed to have a God who knows what lies ahead, and we can trust Him because the Bible tells us He plans to give us a future and a hope. All we have to do is live according to His Word, leave the details up to Him, and all Him to guide us into His will.” (Turning Points, Dr. David Jeremiah, 2/18/09)

Henry Ward Beecher said, “Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith.”

Which handle are you holding onto as you face tomorrow – if the Lord wills?
