Sharing today from Sunday's message at church. God knew what I needed to hear after a long week and the stress of this week ahead. Thank you Jesus for using Pastor Mark to speak to me thru the Holy Spirit, may those of you reading hear the voice of truth speaking!
James 4:13-17 "Come now you who say, "Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit. Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and also do this or that." But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil. Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin."
The premise of the message is for the practical atheist; planning without God. We can be believers and forget God. What is the solution? Include God in your DAILY LIFE.
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths."
Don't put off doing good. Some sins are sins of commission; some are sins of ommission.
What is the solution? Invest your life in things that MATTER.
Stop PRESUMING about tomorrow.
-Life is unpredictable.
Proverbs 27:1 "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day might bring forth."
-Life is BRIEF.

-Don't give yourself to worry.
Matthew 6:34 "So don't be anxious about tomorrow-God will take care of your tomorrow too.
-Live one day at a time."

-DO give yourself to happiness!
Proverbs 3:1-2 "My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life for many years and bring you prosperity."
