James- Day 49

But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.”  James 4:16

God knows that when we don’t ask these questions to Him as we plan that our tendency will be toward pride, arrogance, and eventually sinful actions.  He knows that as we act on our plans that He was not a part of, He will be left out.

What is ironic about that scenario is that He is the one who knows and is in control of the future.  All of our boasting and plans really are in vain when we leave Him out.

Application:  Here is a great prayer for today:  “God, I know it would be silly for me to live without a plan, but it would be even more tragic if I lived with a plan that you weren’t a part of.  God I wan tto do only what you would have me to do today.  Please help me to do what You want.  I’m inviting you into my plans today.  Amen.”
