First let me tell you this;
The philosophy in tomorrow is not always for tomorrow but for just today.THE BEST TOMORROW IS TODAY! In my understanding of TOMORROW,i have found out that it is a fearful thing for every being to think about their TOMORROW, in short, let me say everyone is afraid of the uncertain tomorrow.
The Bible talked about TOMORROW,in Proverbs27:1 " Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth."
That's the pin-point, which God through His wisdom He gave King Solomon which made him revealed this truth.This scripture here told us not to boast of thyself about tomorrow.The key here is boasting.The Bible did not ask you not share your dreams.You may share dreams with closed families,lovers and well wishers.Those whom you know could help achieve your dreams why not share your dreams with them.However sharing dreams should not bring boasting.You are to be plain. and come up with the facts which are going to be glorifying to God himself and his Christ only.
It looks as if we talk TOMORROW as if in future but,no, it is today.As you boast on your future thinking you are preparing your TOMORROW,you have damaged your tomorrow from your today.
Apostle James also revealed this basic truth by shedding light on it by his comprehensive details on why not to boast of TOMORROW. JAMES 4:13- 17:
13"Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14Why, 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. 15Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. 17Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins."
He described a man who wanted to travel abroad for example who has been busy boasting that, London is going to be sweet,Jerusalem is going to be a wonderful place ....,He is going to rock America.They are going to ride flashy cars when he or she get to their destinations abroad etc etc.. You are warned of the future.That place begin on a today.That today is what you based your future on.Instead of boasting why not first give your LOVE to the Lord.Let him give you go ahead before you go anywhere.The problem is that many don't know the Lord,so how are they waiting?They can't wait for the Lord,such will go anywhere without the Lord approval.The Bible said all such is evil.
Because of this economical word many of us have abandoned the true way for the other ways,rushing after money,wealth, fame and vain glories of this world that will soon perish.We condoned sins as if we needed it as we need water!The best is to do the work of today and tomorrow shall do the work of themselves.
How much time have you spent today reading and studying the bible? How much time do you spent in prayer daily ? What did you pray for? Did you petition God to do something for you so you could be "successful" or did you pray for Him to use you for his glory?
We take the time to set goals and work to achieve them in our secular life but often do not give thought to setting goals and striving to meet them in our spiritual lives. Which one do you think is the most important?
Finally, Reverence God in all your plans as if there is only today and pursue your goals as if all days are tomorrow in the best of today!
See you in another today!!
