Today “is” but tomorrow is a question

vanishing smoke2aPsalm 146 “Today “is” but tomorrow is a question”

The psalmist extols his view of life and of God. He sees God as his protector, redeemer and steadfast unlike men who are untrustworthy and unreliable. As with many psalms he begins with praising God. “I will praise the Lord as long as I live” because whatever we may plan for today may not come to pass and tomorrow is even more questionable—so redeem the time you have been given. James captured this in a nutshell:

James 4: “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will travel to such and such a city and spend a year there and do business and make a profit.” You don’t even know what tomorrow will bring—what your life will be! For you are like [a puff of smoke/vapour] that appears for a little while, then vanishes [is snatched out of sight]. Instead, you should say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”

Today as you go about your day, stop and give praise to God for every moment you have been given. Praise Him for all He has given and done for you. Use  today to praise God and see His plan for your day. Begin your day with asking what He would have you to do today because:

There is no guarantee of a tomorrow.

So Psa 105:4  Seek the Lord and the strength he gives!Seek his presence continually!
