Are we to plan for our future?

Are we to plan for our future?

Double Mind

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matt. 6:34 KJV)

As we think about the new year how does Jesus’ statement affect our planning, goal setting or even making resolutions?  Where are we ever told to plan for the future in the new covenant relationship with Jesus? The past is under the blood and the future is in God’s hands. All we have is the present. Isn’t it sufficient enough to just walk in Christ today? Even Jesus was limited in His knowledge of the future. He only knew that He was going to die. Much of what He knew of His future came from the Scripture and the rest from what the Father showed Him through the course of each day. He reminded us that He didn’t do anything but what the Father showed Him (John 5:19). Should we be any different?

As we live in union with Christ we can take freedom in not having to worry or even plan for our future. We simply do each day what we see Jesus doing. Watch for what He has in store through you in 2017.

Happy new year through Christ
