tomorrow is not promised
Nothing can guarantee you and your plans tomorrow to come true. Yes! tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

Life teaches us so many lessons. We just move about without knowing what could happen to us in the next few minutes. Why tomorrow is not promised?.

We must first understand that our human nature has no power over natural laws. You cannot control time, space, seasons, etc. It takes the supernatural power to see through the future and only God can do this best!

Someone might find himself in troubles or in the grips of death while family, friends, co-workers, etc, would be waiting to see him around. Life is full of uncertainties. This is why we must be grateful to God each moment for tomorrow is not promised.

Do You Believe Tomorrow Is Not Promised?

As we go on our daily activities, we must remind ourselves that tomorrow is not promised. Yes!, anything can happen at any moment. Tomorrow always remains a mystery; Lest the supernatural power of God reveals it.

I have talked about the best ways of taking good care of ourselves in my recent posts. Today is an extension of how life can take us by surprise in many ways. I iterated that, making a promise is not advisable. Procrastination too is not advisable. In fact, as for procrastination, it could bring about a serious regretful moment that can never be undone. Avoid it outright.

Tomorrow is not promised Bible verse

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow let us go into this city, and spend a year there, trade, and make a profit.” Whereas you do not know what tomorrow will be like. What is your life?

For you are a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. For you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will both live, and do this or that.” But now you glory in your boasting. All such boasting is evil.” (James 4:13 – 16)

Facts To Remember while You Live Today

The most interesting thing is that; All our dreams are ahead of us. But we don’t know what tomorrow brings. We are only hopeful because tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone.

You can’t dare to see tomorrow by any means necessary. Because it is beyond your control. You can’t dare to do something you have planned tomorrow with a 100% certainty.

God threw a challenge to Job asking him if he can command the day daylight to shine?:

“Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, or made the dawn know its place” (Job 38:12).

No one can control the days, time, and seasons. But we do enjoy all these by the grace of God. In him, we find much assurance of a happy future, and more importantly an eternal life.

I keep on unfolding some of the reasons why tomorrow is not promised; I would like to remind you about the major thing scaring millions of people; and it goes like:  Death is the biggest enemy.

Death, on the other hand, can’t scare my kind, fear can’t scare my kind, neither will misfortune scare anyone who knows his purpose here for God.

It is like asking a soldier, “are you scared of death?.” That would be a rhetorical question. A real soldier is always ready to smile at his death. He knows tomorrow is not promised. He wouldn’t stress over it. Tomorrow will stress over itself.

True Christians are soldiers in Christ. And are always willing to die for his name’s sake. Because in him we can find everything that we need. So there is no cause of alarm if we walk through darkness or lose everything.

Since Tomorrow Is Not Promised, Should We Be Afraid?

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow let us go into this city, and spend a year there, trade, and make a profit.” Whereas you do not know what tomorrow will be like. What is your life?

For you are a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. For you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will both live, and do this or that.” But now you glory in your boasting. All such boasting is evil.” (James 4:13 – 16)

On my side and on behalf of all true Christians; We believe tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone. We should acknowledge the fact that it is by the grace of God that we wake up each morning.

It is not because of anyone’s money, wealth, beauty, status, etc. It is a gift we must enjoy. The grace from God helps us execute our future plans without any fear.

God is the only one who knows tomorrow. Human beings cannot fathom his greatness. God uses his right hand to protect those who rely on him. He has many promised to give his children a brighter future and He is not a man that He should lie.

Having the Spirit of God in you will make you fearless. Just like what 1 John 4:4 says:

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.”

You Surely Have Plans For Tomorrow

I believe you had your plans yesterday about your today’s schedule. Oh thank God, today has met you. But it has been an unfortunate moment for someone else. The person might find himself in trouble or death might have laid its icy hands on him.

Tomorrow is always a mystery to us. Taking a critical look at this scenario; Let me draw your attention to the fact that, you don’t even know what is going to happen in the next minutes.

Are you ready to accept any occurrence in your life from the next minutes’ fatefully?. Has anyone promised to help you tomorrow?. If “Yes“, then bear in mind that it is never guaranteed to you. The unexpected can strike and bring all your plans to a halt.

There is only one person to guarantee us tomorrow. He is the creator of heaven and earth. Those who make his word a lamp unto their feet and paths have the assurance of tomorrow. Not just tomorrow, but eternal life even if they die. Even if they fall, they will rise again.

Here, it takes the supernatural power of God to make the impossible possible.

Be Wise And Seek For God’s Guidance And Know That Tomorrow Is Not Guaranteed

Don’t be complacent that you will wake up tomorrow to your normal routines. You have no idea of the unknown future.

Remember, you can’t even take care of yourself when you are asleep. Lest God sends an angel to protect you. You are weak and vulnerable to destruction; so all your plans in life could be fruitless if you are boastful about your strength and wisdom. Learn how to live humbly while God bless you always with a fresh morning.

Tomorrow is not promised so attach yourself to the only one who can promise you tomorrow. God shuts and no one opens. He opens and no one shuts. He is the creator of this universe.

Tomorrow and the future are always ahead of us but we can’t see it. Imagine how amazing it looks.

Don’t be like the rich man who stored food in his barns, ate, drank, and felt complacent about tomorrow. What happened to him?. God said, “you fool, tonight I will take your life from you.”

You can find this scripture in Luke 12.

Verse 18, “And he said, This I will do: I will take down my store-houses and make greater ones, and there I will put all my grain and my goods.”

19. “And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have a great amount of goods in store, enough for a number of years; be at rest, take food and wine and be happy.”

20.” But God said to him, You foolish one, tonight I will take your soul from you, and who then will be the owner of all the things which you have got together?”

The Grace Of God Is Here To Take You Through Tomorrow

The only person who can assure you “tomorrow” is God. He knows everything, he can do everything. Why not live under his wings?.

Before you conquer the fear and anxieties of tomorrow you need to understand some of God’s promises to give you a brighter future.

Although tomorrow is not promised to anyone but with God and his amazing grace; tomorrow will be full of blessings, success, healings, happiness, and redemption.

I recommend finding more about what the grace of God has for you in the next years of your life. You are covered with the blood of Jesus.

In Summation

There is no way we can stay away from God. He is everywhere(omnipresent). He moves around every part of the universe incognito. Fear him and live long. Do not fear what tomorrow brings.

In order to clarify yourself that you believe tomorrow is not promised; Say “if God permits” anything you are referring to a scheduled you are reckoning on. May God be with us. Amen.
