Proverbs 27:1
“Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”

There is kind of an acute awareness in the back of our minds that we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. The degree to which some care about it varies. But we are all very aware that we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. The poster child for this feeling has to be September 11th, 2001. Most everyone knows where they were that Tuesday morning when they heard the news about the Twin Towers in New York City. We have experienced the aftermath of the event and are witnessing its continual unfolding even today.

There was a Believer who was working in Manhattan during the attack, and as the day went on, he was one of the many who walked home across the Brooklyn Bridge. He said, “There was an eerie silence in the city that day I had never heard before.” He went on to explain that he didn’t really know what had happened until later when the magnitude of the event began to sink in. As Believers, we are aware of the prophecies that things like this are to be expected. America has sinned away its day of grace and these events are the result of a world without God. Yet there is a solemn understanding that we really are in the hands of God and at His mercy. We really do not know what tomorrow holds.

It causes us to look at our spouses and think how much we really do love and appreciate them. It causes us to look at our children and families and thank God for them. We begin to realize by experience that the Lord gives and the Lord takes away. September 11th is more than an event that confirms prophecy. It is a horrific reminder that we do not know what tomorrow will bring and that we are at the mercy of a loving God. It gives new life to the assurance we have that we are His.

63-0825M - “How Can I Overcome?”
And we pray, God, that, at that time, that we will be numbered among those that’ll be blended into Christ, that’s called His Bride. Help us, today, as we prepare, knowing not what tomorrow will hold, but we are ready to receive anything, Lord, as far as we know, that Thou has for us. We are ready to receive It. We ask this blessing for the glory of God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
