Bible Ballistics: BBs #499 HE Has Today!!!
“Boast not thyself of to morrow;
for thou knowest not
what a day may bring forth.” Proverbs 27:1
Jesus walked this earth knowing where HE was going, what HE had to do, and what it would cost! We on the other hand must rely on the ONE who does know today and tomorrow and remember to leave it in HIS hands. Because I believe Jesus and His Word, and because I have walked with HIM for some 40 years, I have come to know that HE Is faithful in every way, every day! As we talked about recently, HE has promised to “never leave” us, or “forsake us”, no matter how dark the clouds may look. We may not know what today holds, and we certainly don’t know about tomorrow—but if you belong to Jesus, remember, HE does!
I simply want to share one of my favorite passages where Jesus reminds us that we must keep our eyes on HIM and not our circumstances. Circumstances change—they come and go—but JESUS never does! And He will order our steps according to HIS Word if we will but look up, trust HIM and press on in faith and obedience!
“Which of you by taking thought
can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought
Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow;
they toil not,
neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you,
That even Solomon
in all his glory
was not arrayed
like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass
of the field,
which to day is,
and to morrow is cast into the oven,
shall he not much more
O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought,
What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink?
or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things
do the Gentiles seek:)
for your heavenly Father knoweth
that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first
the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness;
and all these things
shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought
for the morrow:
for the morrow
shall take thought for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Matthew 6:27-34
Whose kingdom are you seeking and following? Let’s be sure we are seeking “the kingdom of God, and his righteousness” (which is only found in Jesus), and He has promised to take care of the rest….the “rest of the story” and the “rest” to our souls!!
Amen and Amen!
