A Season of Thanksgiving – Day 13


James 4:[13] Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into
such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life?
It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then
vanisheth away.

[15] For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.


Luke 12:[22] And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body,
what ye shall put on.

[23] The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have
storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better
than the fowls?

[25] And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
[26] If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and
yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like
one of these.

[28] If then God so clothe the grass, which is
to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more
will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

[29] And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
[30] For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
[31] But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.


I am so, so thankful that I do not know what tomorrow holds for me.

I know for a fact that I would not be happy with that revelation, and would spend all my "todays" trying to properly prepare for or delay the inevitable occurrences.

No, I do not want to know about tomorrow – its sorrow or its joy.

But I am happy that I can say I know WHO knows about tomorrow…and I trust Him to make everything "ok" as I walk through each circumstance with my hand held securely in His.

The saying is trite, but it is true,

"I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow."

Do you know the God of tomorrow?  I pray that you do.
