What’s Your Plan For Today?

James 4:11-17

Most of us are very independent in how we live our lives. We plan our days and pursue our goals based on what’s important to us . . . and it never occurs to us that there’s any other way to live. James pointed out the foolishness of this kind of thinking when he said, “No one knows what tomorrow holds.” We can plan our days, but we know that our plans are subject to change without notice.

God gives us an alternative to this foolishly independent way of life. He asks us to start each day with the question, “What does God will for my day?” He asks us to plan our lives so we can pursue his goals. People who train their hearts to seek first the kingdom of God will find that God has made divine appointments for them–opportunities to join him in what HE has planned for the day.

Do you live as if you don’t expect God to do anything special in your todays or have you told God that you’re available for whatever it is he wants to do?

    Excellent devotional. . . ”available”

    “. . . pursue his goals.”

    Several years ago, I heard a sermon, “We don’t know that we’re not there until we get there.” That was a very thought provoking statement . . . that can go on to eternity.

    To love God with all of our heart must be like that first personal relationship; “only it lasts forever”. When we’re not with Him, He consumes our thoughts. Therefore, we love the ones were with.

    After all, our minds are usually not idle; we’re usually thinking about something when we’re not thinking about what we’re doing.
