A Simple Plan For The Day

“Never do anything tomorrow that you can do today”
Is a common old powerful phrase
Similarly James 4:13-14 says “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow 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.”

So, true.

Recently, I had my day all planned out, only to wake up not feeling well and unable to get out of bed. I ended up sleeping half the day.
When I was able to get up, it made me think about how easy it is to take for granted the ability to perform every day, routine, tasks. Sometimes, due to unforeseen circumstances, we can’t even execute a simple plan for the day.
It also made me think about James 4:15 that says “For that ye ought to say, if the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that”.

Every good and perfect thing comes from the Lord (James 1:17. We can’t even carry out a simple plan of the day, without His grace and mercy which makes it possible.
