Plan Ahead but Do Not Boast

“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.”

Proverbs 27:1 (NIV)

What does it mean to boast? It means to talk excessively with pride about one’s achievements, possessions, or abilities. We should not praise ourselves extravagantly in our communication, we should not be prideful. Proverbs 27:1 reminds us that we never know what tomorrow holds so it would be foolish to be boastful about our plans for the future. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

Proverbs 27:1

“Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Matthew 6:34

Along with not bragging about what we plan to do in the future or about what we have, we should also not worry about what tomorrow might bring. We have enough to think about each day without being anxious about what may or may not happen in the future. God wants us to rely on Him for all our needs today, and tomorrow, and in the future. Let Him handle everything and you will not need to be concerned about having enough to eat, having a place to live, or anything else because God will provide. You just need to trust Him that He will meet all your needs.

Matthew 6:34

What are we to do instead of being anxious and worrying about our lives? We should Pray. Let God know what you need and be sure to thank Him for everything He has done for you. When you pray and release your troubles to God, He will give you peace far beyond anything you can comprehend.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians $;6-7 (ESV)

Remember tomorrow is not guaranteed, so never brag about your plans. Do not worry about the future. Trust God. He will take care of everything; He will always be there for you taking care of all your needs.

God Bless. Thank you. Remember I appreciate y’all.
