“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”–Proverbs 27:1 Gomer Pyle had it right when he said,”Surprise, Surprise!” Life is full of surprises. None of us know what a day may hold. While we’ve gotten pretty good at predicting the weather, there are some things we just can’t predict. Experience has taught us to expect the unexpected. This very day, some will receive a notice that they have been laid off from their job. Others will receive a bad and sad diagnoses from their doctor. Some will be told by their spouse that they want a divorce. Indeed this will be a sad day for a lot of folks. But, on the otherhand, some will receive wonderful news today, and they will be on the mountain top. The one sure thing is that we don’t know what lies ahead. Now, here’s the good news. As uncertain as the future is, we know that God never changes. He is “the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.”(Hebrews 13:8). You can count on God! Regardless of what happens today, God is just as loving, wise, faithful, and powerful as He was yesterday. And, He will be the same tomorrow. You can rely on God regardless of your situation. His promises are true. Fix your thoughts upon the Lord and trust Him to use today’s experience for some good and His glory. He can do it. Whether sunshine or rain, or pleasure or pain, God can make something glorious out of your experience. Knowing this is true should make this day special—-live it to the fullest!
