If The Lord Wills

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is Your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that” {James 4:13-15}.

It was apart of recent past that many people used to begin their statement of plans with “Lord willing”. The phrase may have become trite, or unpopular in the modern church that is so preoccupied with material blessings; but the acknowledgement of God’s overruling and sovereign hand is not. As we look ahead into this New Year, we can face the future with confidence with God firmly in view, because our walk in Christ is a walk of faith. And is rooted and grounded in His Word resulting in our willingness to submit to His authority and His will being manifested in our lives.

May God bless your walk!
