“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. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” James 4:13-17 NKJV
At first glance you may think that James is telling us that we do not need to make plans, just trust the Lord and let things fall into place. But I do not think so. He speaks of our life being short and we cannot depend on our own plans. We do not know if we will die, loss our job, become ill or any of the many disasters that can come on man. Instead me must seek the Lords will in all manners of our lives. From the smallest detail to the biggest decisions, we must seek Him. Matthew says in Chapter 6 and verse 33 of the book of Matthew, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Therefore we should look at how our decisions will affect the Kingdom of God. We cannot look at this in the natural, but the supernatural or in the Spirit. So I say, "Life is Short, Give it to God"
