Truth be told we can have an idea what tomorrow may look like, what we will do an hour from now, but reality is we can never be 100% certain. We live moment by moment, and the only thing we know for sure is what we are doing right now.
So many of us had plans for 2020. Plans to start a business, go on a trip, get married, welcome a baby; yet our plans have been blindsided by something completely out of our control. CODVID19 has caused the plans of millions to change within days and now we’re forced to live day by day not knowing what will come next.
Yet, none of this has been a surprise to God because every day of our life was written long before a single day was lived (Psalm139:6). God knew what we would be facing right now, and only He knows what truly will come next. I believe God is using this time for us to learn to seek Him and trust Him in our the uncertainty of our future. He wants to help us navigate in this moment everything we may be feeling: nervous, anxious, stressed, overwhelmed and afraid because we don’t know when you will be working again. If we will have enough food, if our families and loved ones will be okay. It’s a lot, and truth is we can’t truly control what the outcome will be.
Therefore we have a choice, get overwhelmed and anxious because the control of our plans has slipped out of our hands or take this time to learn to let go and trust in Him and His promises?
I encourage you to stand confident that His plans are greater than ours (Isaiah 55:8-9). His plans are never to destroy but to bring hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). His plans always work out for the good of those who choose to trust him through it all (Romans 8:28).
I like you, made many plans for 2020 and now I choosing to take it day by day and trust God with my plans knowing that He will take care of me. I refuse to let myself get overwhelmed with the what ifs, but remind myself of what He has already promised me. So though I may not know 100% what tomorrow holds, I trust 100% the One who holds my tomorrow.
Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.”How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:13-15
