Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. —Proverbs 27:1


Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Humility about the future! We don’t control tomorrow. At other times in our lives we may have taken tomorrow for granted; not so anymore. Tomorrow may not come. Tomorrow something horrible could happen. Tomorrow everything we possess could be gone. In the face of these discouraging possibilities, is there anything positive we can hold onto? Absolutely! We know that God holds tomorrow in his hands. We know that because our life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:1-4) our tomorrow is secure. It might not be what we expect. It might not go as we planned. But, it will go as God determines and it will end up with us sharing in his comfort, victory, and glory.

My Prayer…

Father, my tomorrows all rest in your hands. I ask that I can be useful to you today; courageous enough not to worry about tomorrow, and loyal enough to not waver in my love for you and my commitment to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  1. Proverbs 27:1
    Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.

    When I was growing up, my parents trained me and my brothers to always say “Godwilling” about something that we were planning to do. It was something that they always did, so it was just part of the speech around our house. As I got older I actually realized just how appropriate it was to say before planning something!
    God wants His children to keep Him at the center of all things in our lives….even our plans. Furthermore, He expects us to be flexible about our plans for He may need to change them for our own good! When He does this our response should be accepting, not resentful and bitter that we did not get our own way. He created us and therefore always knows what is the very best for us, the question is do we trust Him?

    Romans 12:1 has been a life verse for me, it says, “Therefore I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.”
    If a person wants to truly enjoy Christianity, this verse must be obeyed. It is only when we submit ourselves to God and His plans for us that we are really free and can enjoy the peace, joy, and contentment that only He can give through His indwelling Holy Spirit!
    Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” This is our promise from God that He only plans and desires the best for us even though it may not look like the best to us at the time. He sees the entire span of our lives from beginning to end and knows the correct path for us to take. So when circumstances are less than desirable in life, or maybe even tragic, Lord help us to keep our eyes fixed on Christ and know in our hearts that He has a good plan for us at all times. God will never abandon us (Hebrews 13:5), for we are His blood bought children and He loves us more than we will ever fully know!

    Thank You my precious Lord Jesus for coming to this wicked world that You knew would mock and mistreat You, and dying on the cross for my sins. Thank You for following through with the plan of salvation, all because of Your great love and mercy for me. I love You so my Redeemer and give You all praise this day, Amen!
