Wednesday’s Word

Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth (Proverbs 27:1).

Someone noted: those who died yesterday, had plans for today; those who died last night, had plans for this morning. Making plans is not bad, as a matter of fact, we should make plans, but with understanding. God has promised that we all shall die, but God has not said when, where or how.

We should plan to live today, but more importantly we must plan to live eternally. Too often, plans are made, but God is not considered. James wrote: Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that (James 4:13-15).

What plans are you making? Jesus said: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:19-21). Do the majority of your plans have to do with the things and time of this world? One day all things of this world will be destroyed; one day, the time of this world will cease.

On the eternal day, the things we have laid up in Heaven, will be enjoyed in Heaven and this includes our plans.What plans are you making, for going to Heaven? Jesus said: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Are you planning to go to Heaven through Christ? Are you planning to go to Heaven in accordance to the word of the Lord? Are you planning to go to Heaven, by the way of the Lord?What plans are you making for tomorrow?
