Do you ever worry about tomorrow? “Tomorrow” may be a metaphor for many things including money, love, job or even world war. Is there a rational way to get over the anxiety concerning “tomorrow?” Pills are not one, for they tend to rob us of certain human traits that can function to help us make our tomorrows better, safer, even enjoyable.
Another way is to learn to understand that most of the things we worry about never happen. That’s why Dale Carnegie taught his students the secret of living in “day tight compartments.” Jesus taught the same thing way back during the days He walked around the Holy Land.
Here’s what the man reputed to be the wisest man who ever lived, King Solomon, said about tomorrow:
Proverbs 27:1 “Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth.” (NKJV).
He’s right, we do NOT know for certain what a day may have wrapped in it. So, what if we knew someone who does know for sure what tomorrow holds that is of concern to us as we tread this vail of tears. There is one who for rock solid certain what tomorrow holds concerning us. We can trust this special person concerning tomorrow.
It’s easy to learn from the story of Job, the man who gained great patience through suffering. He knew for a fact that nothing could happen to him without it having passed over God’s desk for approval. He understood that even though many of his tomorrows included excruciating suffering, that would ultimately bring about something good. God’s like that and He always surprising us at the end.
Here’s a statement that can really help us toward a calm inner peace about things we do not know about:
“All the tomorrows of our lives have to pass Him before they get to us!”
