WHO KNOWS TOMORROW?
TEXT: PROVERBS 27:1-2
MEMORY VERSE:” Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth” (PROVERBS 27:1).
Science and technology has developed means of forecasting weather and wind direction, though not to exact precision. This however helps us to plan and prepare for the future. Nations of the world invest much money in research so as to make the future generation have a better life. However, a single natural disaster of flood, storm or earthquake can render such projects and plans useless. The builders of the Tower of Babel, the victims of the USA World Trade Center 9/11 attack, and those of the earthquake/tsunami that devastated parts of Japan in March, 2011, had their future plans, which became shattered dreams.
The wise youth trusts in the Lord like the song writer says:
“Many things about tomorrow,
I don’t seem to understand;
But I know who holds tomorrow,
And I know who holds my hands”.
Leave your tomorrow in God’s hands. He is faithful to give the best to all who hand their plans to Him. Those who boast of their tomorrow are not wise. Better to say, “…If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that” (James 4:15).
QUOTE:Leave your tomorrow in God’s hands.
CHALLENGE:Only God knows the details about our future.
PRAYER: Lord, in you I trust. See me through today and in days ahead.
