Why , you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that. –James 4:14, 15.
We find it easy to say, “Don’t worry.” That is, until we have something to worry about ourselves. We find it equally as easy to tell others not to boast and brag, still when we have opportunity, we do likewise.
Often times we find ourselves giving a lot of jaw action and little arm action. The point is simple, our lives need to be Christ-centered. That’s a given. But, truly learning to wait on His will, to put our own wants, desires and boastings to the side and wait. Is hard. We’re selfish by nature. And with today’s attitude of “it’s all about me,” there seems to be less focus on the path that can lead us to spiritual freedom.
We are quick to say, “If it’s God’s will then this will happen or that will happen.” How good of us to assume God’s will. The acceptance of the Father’s will doesn’t come through saying the words, it comes through faithful and time consuming wait. Trust. Prayer. The faith comes in knowing His will shall be manifested when the time is right. Until that time, we need not worry, or boast, or assume–only wait patiently. Worry about nothing. Trust in fully in the presence of God. His will shall come to pass.
Prayer: Father, we fall to our knees praying, worshiping and loving You.
