With the launching of a new calendar year, "tomorrow" is hot topic for today. Everyone likes to talk about what we will be doing tomorrow, or the next day or the next month. We make resolutions and plans for days that are not guaranteed to come.

That’s not entirely bad. Planning is a good thing. But presumption is not.

The Bible has a lot to say about tomorrow. Solomon wrote, "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth" (Proverbs 27:1, NKJ). Jesus underscores the same truth in Matthew 6:34, in Luke 12:16-31 and in other teachings.

James repeats the principle saying, "Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit;’ whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away" (James 4: 13-14, NKJ).

The year 2013 is here, but uncertain. However, the God who supercedes time is the owner of all that is certain.

As believers, our joy for 2013 is established in the person of Jesus Christ and the nature of God, the Father. In a day of abounding uncertainly, we are hopeful and confident. May God bless you with a great year as you are held in the grip of His secure hand.
