What Will Tomorrow Bring?
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.Proverbs 27:1
Normally, people schedule tomorrow’s activities, but no one knows what tomorrow will bring. Tomorrow may bring tragedy, but most people view these with a low probability of occurring. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. (John 16:13) Christ speaks to us through the Spirit and he knows exactly what we will encounter tomorrow. If we pray for guidance by the Spirit, we can be prepared for whatever happens tomorrow. It’s always good for us to know we have already started our eternal life, only our fleshly suit dies, and we live forever with the Father and the Son. In this life we know through the Spirit, but eternally we will see them face to face.
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. (James 4:14) Christians live each day for the Lord because we never know when we will leave this world for our Heavenly home. We should always be ready to go to our Heavenly home, because Satan is out to kill, steal, and destroy. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)
Live each day to the full for Christ and pray for protection. Be prepared to go to your eternal home any day. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. (John 14:3-4) Christ is returning to take us to our Heavenly home and we know the way to where we are going. The Word guides us to our eternal home and every day we serve the Lord as he guides us home.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) We can live each day with hearts centered on our earthly existence or we can live each day with hearts centered on eternal life. I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far. (Philippians 1:23) The apostle Paul was ready to go home and be with Christ which is better by far.
The more we are eternally minded and the more we seek to live each day as though it could be our last, the more content and peaceful we can become. We are always ready and waiting for Christ to return and take to us to our eternal home, a place where Satan and his demons don’t exist and evil is gone. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. (1 John 2:17) Live each day doing the will of God and don’t focus on worldly desires for they pass away. We live and work in this world to make a living, but we also at the same time bring Christ to the world.
Today follow the Spirit and live for Christ. Reap peace, joy, and contentment by always being ready to go to your eternal home.
Prayer: Lord, I don’t what tomorrow may bring but I trust you to guide me through each and every day. I pray that I will always be ready to leave this earth for my Heavenly home. In Jesus’ name, Amen
