10/16/14 Daily Devotion

James 4:15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”

For the most part, as they say, we live by the seat of our pants. We don’t make the type of plans that we should. We don’t take our futures seriously enough to be worried about what the future holds. We have a tendency to live for today. We have a tendency to live for the moment. We have a tendency to do for ourselves. While planning for the future and living for today are both important, James is trying to help us understand that we need to walk through life with the proper focus, with the proper motivation. Plan for the future, live within the moment, but remain focused on the will of God for your life. If God is not included in everything, we are setting ourselves up to fail.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see the need to follow You, to seek Your will, to understand what You want me to do with my life.
