James 4:13-14 says” 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.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life?
There is a saying that say’s “today is today” how many of you have heard it? Now let me ask you this, do you know what it means? That saying simply means that yesterday was yesterday and I am not going to worry about what happened yesterday by bringing it into my today. For today is a brand new day.
Amazing right? We all have said it and probably didn’t know the impact of its meaning. Let’s face it folks we can’t earn nothing from worrying about yesterday, the only thing we will get from it is stress. So maybe things didn’t work-out the way you would have liked it too. We have no control over what comes our way but what we can control is how we will react to it.
James is reminding us that we have no reason to get so caught up in what tomorrow holds for we are just a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
And so what it the right way to handle our yesterday’s and tomorrows according to James? Well it is founded in verse 15, its say’s Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.
Be blessed on this wonderful Sunday and know that you have no reason to worry about your yesterday’s that was then for today is a brand new day that you will rely upon the Lord for this day. AMEN!
