Daily Fountain 2017 - Trust God For Tomorrow

Friday March 10

Bible Reading:     James 4: 13 - 17

Topic:         Trust God For Tomorrow

As human beings we sometimes make very exhaustive and meticulous plan for our lives without due consideration of submitting such plans under God's Will

James admonishes against such arrogance and foolishness seeing that we don't have control over our lives. God alone has that Power, therefore we should approach all our planning in a spirit of humility and say "if the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that (v. 15)

The Psalmist says "Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain." (Psalm 127: 1)

Jesus counsels against anxiety over our material needs of food and clothing (Matt. 6: 25 - 34)

Since we have no power over what happens, it is only reasonable that we should depend entirely on the One Who has Absolute Power over ALL happenings in all days.

Proverbs 3: 5 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

Trusting the Lord for the unknown morrow brings peace to the mind and sound health to the soul.

You have no power over tomorrow therefore let God handle it , you can never regret doing so.

Thank You Lord Jesus because You hold my future in Your Hands, I ask for grace to trust You absolutely without wavering for a better tomorrow, Amen.

Memory verse:   James 4: 17
"Therefore to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin"
