Christian Devotional – November 26, 2015

For those of you in the United States – Happy Thanksgiving!!

Read James chapter 4


James 4:13–Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.


No matter whether we are a planner or not, we all have a tendency to look forward and have some idea of what we intend to have happen. However, as scripture here says, we can’t even predict what will happen tomorrow. Our life, for all that we try to think of it as, is simply a mist and a vapor that will be here for just a little while and then will vanish. What are we doing that has eternal results? As we go through today, we must be focused on the important things of this life that have lasting results, knowing that the seemingly urgent plans that we are making may be disrupted by one thing or another.


Father, keep my perspective on the things that matter. I know that You have everything in Your hands and I pray that You will continue to work with me to help me not get distracted trying to plan for this life instead of planning for eternity. I will trust that today, no matter what happens, You are in control.
