Today's Verse: James 4:14-15 (KJV)

Sunday, April 14, 2019

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.
— James 4:14-15 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"If the Lord wills!" Do you do short term and long range planning? I do. But my planning always has an invisible asterisk: "If Lord, this is your will and your timing." I don't know about you, but God has shown me time and again that if I will be open to him, his timing is always better than my planning. Does that mean I quit planning? Nope. I just plan with prayer, asking for wisdom and the Holy Spirit to help me find God's timing to know and do his will (James 1:5-6 & Ephesians 5:15-18). Life is too short to not plan with prayer and walk led by the Spirit!

My Prayer...

Not my will, Father, but yours be done this day, and all the days of my life. In Jesus' holy name I ask it. Amen.
