Although the devil attempts to make us believe we’re stymied in a gory situation right now; we refuse to buy into his lies. Instead we declare that we remain overcomers as God as promised through the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimonies; Revelation 12:11.
If nothing else, this season makes us realize the efficacy of God’s word. We’re literally seeing scriptures play out before us and today’s meditation reminds us of one of God’s instructions about committing our activities and times into His hands, like King David usually did; Psalm 31:15.
The Passion Translation (TPT) of James 4:13-16 states, “ Listen, those of you who are boasting, “Today or tomorrow we’ll go to another city and spend some time and go into business and make heaps of profit!” But you don’t have a clue what tomorrow may bring. For your fleeting life is but a warm breath of air that is visible in the cold only for a moment and then vanishes! Instead you should say, “Our tomorrows are in the Lord’s hands and if he is willing we will live life to its fullest and do this or that.” But here you are, boasting in your ignorance, for to be presumptuous about what you’ll do tomorrow is evil!”
Isn’t this what is currently playing out today? People can no longer go ahead with plans they had long made because the world is currently at a stand still. We’re reminded that our tomorrows are in the Lord’s hands and we must involve Him in every area of our lives.
Oh, that we would return to God and hand over every aspect of our lives to Him, trusting Him to bring to pass those that are aligned with His will for us; Amen!
