If the Lord Wills

I lied a few posts back. Referring to a performance of The Four Seasons, I said that I couldn’t miss it.

I missed it.

Due to weather, we couldn’t go. I would have liked to have gone. But in the end I’m thankful, because it was a good opportunity to recall four important biblical truths/commands:

  • “The mind of a man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)
  • “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
  • “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know that your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.”
  • “In everything give thanks, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
