 Thought For Today -January 14
 One day at a time

    We should make no definite promises or commitment for tomorrow, for tomorrow, at this point in time, is non existent. We may say, should another day be given to us by the grace of God, we would like to do this or that thing, or go to this place or that, if our Lord is willing for it to be so; always praying that his will be done. In the light of this, we should carefully consider whether or not it might be a bit presumptuous on our part to contract debts for which we must make definite commitments far into the future, not knowing what the future holds for us, or what God's plan for our future may be.
    This is the day that the Lord hath made and has given to us, we ought to rejoice and be glad in it, knowing that for this one day at a time, God has promised to supply all our need. We ought to take the things that we have and use them for the glory of God, and be thankful and not be covetous.
If our Lord wants us to do something, then nothing on earth can stop us from doing that thing that God wants done. If God wants us to have something, then no power on earth or under the earth, or above the earth, can keep it from us. The most secure position a child of God can know is to be right in the center of the will of God.
    If we have to really struggle to make something happen or to obtain some object of our desire, the chances are, it is not the will of God for us. The things that God wills for us will flow easily to us as we delight in him; as we keep our mind and heart stayed on him; and as we seek first the kingdom of God. "Be content with such things as ye have," Jesus told his disciples. "I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound, in all things giving thanks," the apostle Paul said.
    Presuming on God is a sin. It is presumptuous to enter areas of future commitment for which we have no guarantee of fulfillment. Let us not presume upon God. "Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth." Proverbs 27:1 "Go to now, ye that say, today or tomorrow we will go into such a city and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow, for what is your life? it is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, if the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that, but now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. Therefore, to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin." James 4: 13-17
