Tomorrow belongs to God who is the owner of Time
James 4 :10
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."
Our lives are so feeble and uncertain that we can’t commit to tomorrow without God’s permission. Tomorrow does not belong to us but to God. Many people are living their lives dreaming of success for the future as if it belongs to them. But it is true wisdom to realize that life without God, the host of the future, is like living most dangerously with a time bomb.
We’ve got to realize that the master of time is God. Knowing that the master of Time is the key to true success and the blessings in our lives.
The foundation of wisdom is to acknowledge the Lord. He is our Creator and the master of this subject is a truly wise man.
13. 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.” 14. 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. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “if it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16. As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.
Tomorrow does not belong to us. It is a sacred territory that depends entirely on the sovereignty of God. We must live humbly with gratitude to God, who has granted us a valuable present, Time called TODAY. For no matter how much you plan to work for tomorrow and have a big dream of the future, it can be achieved only with the permission of God, who rules Time and Tomorrow and eternity.
You can expect a real tomorrow when you entrust this day with gratitude and humility to God, the Almighty.
So let’s hear the voice of the Lord this early morning.
Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”(James 4:6) Yes, God repels the arrogant and gives grace to the humble.This is the reason why we should obey God.
Come and draw near to God and he will come and draw near to you.(James4:8) We need to keep close to God in order for God to be near to us.
Yes, we’ve got to humble ourselves before the Lord, and he will lift us up.(James 4:10)
Therefore we must live this day with humility and gratitude, giving our hearts and obedience to the LORD, who has given us the most precious gift of ‘Today.’
Therefore, true wisdom is to live day by day and moment by moment with our humble and grateful attitude toward God who has given us the most precious gift, Time, which is Life. Today is the Life which God has granted as his precious gift. This is the wisdom to enjoy the very moment that God has allowed.
I pray that you will live under His sovereign rule by admitting His absolute power and authority in your life. He is God who governs Time and the whole world. God is the center and owner of history. This is the wisdom to know his absolute and omnipotent rules. This is the Kingdom Focused Life.
