Proverbs 27:1-3 Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips. A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.
“Let me see, what do I have on my calendar for tomorrow.” Sound familiar?
We all make plans for the future. Organization is a great tool. God even encourages us to do things in an orderly fashion. However, sometimes we put things off and plan to do on another day, which should be taken care of today. Things such as telling a friend about Christ or showing a Christian brother or sister that we love them. Matters of encouragement to our children and spouse, letting them know they are first in our life. We should be doing these things now rather than later.
The most important of all things you should never put off until tomorrow is knowing for sure where you will spend eternity. Proverbs 27:1 tells us why it is so important to do this today. That is because we really do not know what tomorrow holds in store. Only God knows that, and He is not telling.
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
Do you know Christ as your Lord and Saviour? Romans 10:9-11 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”
A simple prayer of confession from your heart to God is all He is waiting to hear. Something like, “God please forgive me of my sin. I believe Jesus died for my sin, rose, and is coming again. I believe His blood paid the price for all my sin, Amen.”
When should you pray this prayer? Right now, trust Him today. When you do, would you let us know. Our e-mail is LIHW@LivingInHisWord.com. Call a Bible Believing Church in your area and ask the Pastor to help you in your newfound life in Jesus Christ. They will rejoice with you in your decisions to walk in a new life with Christ TODAY.
