It Will Never Happen to Me
Proverbs 27:1 (KJB) Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
So often we may believe we are isolated from bad things happening in our own life. We may tell ourselves those kinds of things happen to other people. We anticipate that our days will continue, and we fill our time with plans for tomorrow. We often fail to pay attention to the needs and demands requiring our attention today.
This is especially true about prioritizing things of God. What we fail to realize is that apart from receiving the grace of God today, our tomorrow on this earth may never come. Instead of boasting about what we will do or say tomorrow we had better pay closer attention to the things God has placed on our plate today.
Tomorrow this earth may still be rotating without our presence upon it if God sees fit to call us home.
God allows every one of us to live and dwell on this earth at His good pleasure. This means that He could certainly choose to “knock the wind out of our sails” yet today. It is true, God alone has the authority over life and death and can call us to eternal rest at any time.
