Trusting God In Our Today And Tomorrow

Proverbs 27:1 says: “ Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring.”

I would like to encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ and all those who are taking time to read this word from the living God to trust God with all your heart, soul and mind, for it is very easy to smile and praise God while everything is going smooth in your life, but when things start getting out of your control and hands, we tend to start doubting God and faint in the faith for things are not going to the direction that we would like them to go. But remember that God is in control of everything if you committed your life to Him and serve Him with all your heart and also remember:

Hebrews 11:1 which says: “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”

If you are not seeing right now something that you expected or hoped for, it is time to use your faith in order to receive it IF your request or prayer is under the Father’s will. Because sometimes we can also ask things to God for our own pleasure and He does not answer for our own good.

Please do not faint when your faith is tested and your today and your tomorrow start being out of your control! That is the time to use your faith and stand firm in what you have believe!! Your plans most of the times are NOT God’s plans. God’s plans are much higher and better than ours for He is the only one who can search what is inside the hearts of all men and the only one who knows the past, present and future and He is the same yesterday, today and forever! Amem!!!

James 4:13-17says: “Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” Otherwise you are boasting about your own plans, and all such boasting is evil. Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.”

Trust all your life and worries to the Lord! He knows everything you need before you need them! Whoever trust in their riches will fall (Proverbs 11:28) and those who trust in their own hearts are unwise (Proverbs 28:26), but those who trust in the Lord are safe (Proverbs 29:25). Glory be to God!

The verses below will show every single professing Christian that reads, listens and obeys the word of God what they should do in order NOT to be worrying about their everyday lives. And those who do not obey the word of God yet should meditate in these words and give their whole hearts, souls and minds to the Lord in order to be able to rest and have peace in their lives as well, not just in the physical part but mainly in the spiritual part.

Christians should not be running around during the night without being able to sleep or talking pills to sleep because they are worried about money and things, they should not be acquiring diseases like ulcers in the stomach and such because their nervous system is about to have a breakdown with so many worries! This is NOT the rest that the Lord has promised to those who trust Him! We must have faith and give it all to Him in order to rest and rejoice in the Lord, even in the midst of our struggles and difficulties. We must seek His kingdom and do righteousness and the rest shall be given to us! The Scriptures below will show clearly that these worries are for UNBELIEVERS not for those who profess and say that have faith or they believe the Lord can do things for them!

Mathew 6:25-34 says: “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God* above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Do not be fooled by those who do not believe in Jesus Christ and His resurrection and keep saying that everything you believe is not right and you had your brain washed and all these good news are fairy tales! Do not be deceived by those who say that Jesus Christ is NOT the savior of the world or that He cannot do anything for you! Do not give ears to those who do not know Christ and His power for they can corrupt your righteous deeds and your character. Do not give the flesh a foothold to sin just because you cannot fit some corrupted sayings and actions of some people! Keep your head up and believe what you read and hear: “The Good News of Jesus Christ that brings salvation to the soul and gives rest and peace to those who believe them!”

1 Corinthians 15:32-34 says: “And what value was there in fighting wild beasts—those people of Ephesus*—if there will be no resurrection from the dead? And if there is no resurrection, “Let’s feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!”* Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.” Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all.

I hope you can trust all to the Lord today! Pray and fight the good fight of faith to be delivered from all the worries that are surrounding your heart , mind and soul and rely solely in Christ and His eternal power for He is the only one that can give you rest and peace and make you rejoice in this process of the testing of your faith and make you grow and mature to be complete and perfect in Him!

God bless you,
Much love in Christ,
