Father knows best…do you really believe that?

Providence of God  |  January 11

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”;
whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”

James 4:13-15

Father, we do plan our days and our future and we often say, “Lord willing”. Let us always know that what is to happen today, tomorrow and forever is known to You. We naturally focus on the days of our lives as important and we sometimes forget that they are as a vapor compared to eternity.

Teach us and lead us as we seek to fulfill Your expectations. It seems right to plan and to pray for certain things to happen and You have told us that is exactly what we should do. We do not control outcomes but we do trust You to know what is best for us. We pray that our hearts and minds are in sync with You, Your word and Your will. Help us O’God to meditate and pray for Your will to be done in our lives this day and forgive us for our lack of patience. In the name of Jesus, Amen

September 29, 2020 Taxes, paid to a pagan government? Why? September 28, 2020 I struggle with a load You want to carry for me...Why? September 27, 2020 Are we required to teach God's word to our kids? September 26, 2020 My heart stands in awe of Your word...Really it does! September 25, 2020 So, how dangerous, in the eyes of God, is it to offend a child? September 24, 2020 You don't know me! I gave money, sang in the choir and on and on. September 23, 2020 I have no gifts...thus I have no responsibilities. Right? September 22, 2020 To be forgiven enables you to forgive September 21, 2020 Am I my brother's keeper...yes, more than I thought. September 20, 2020 Do we have access to "certainty" about eternal matters?
