"Go to now, ye that say, today or tomorrow, we will go into such a city and continue there a year and buy and sell and get gain"
In August, 2005, many residents of some parts of the U.S.A were unaware of the extent of the natural disaster awaiting them. It was the deadliest hurricane in the history of the U.S.A. About 1,836 people lost their lives, 3 million people were without electricity, without houses and S81.3 billion worth of properties destroyed in that disaster. Many of those who died were among those who failed to heed warnings to move to safety or delayed taking action. Whatever is worth doing is not only worth doing well, but also fast. Have you heeded the call to give your life to Jesus?
These residents must have boasted of so many things that they would do or carry out but when disaster struck, they could carry nothing out. This shows the futility of planning without God. Are you planning without God? Do not begin to boast of what you will do today, tomorrow or in the future without God in your plans. Put God first in your plans and He will make it come to pass.
CHALLENGE: Leave your today or tomorrow in the hands of God.
PRAYER: Lord, control all my plans, in the name of Jesus.
