13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
So quickly our lives can change. Last night, when I put my head on the pillow, I had no idea that within fifteen minutes we’d be out of bed and desperately trying to bring down our young daughter’s temperature, the highest temperature I’ve ever seen (when you’ve had six kids, that’s saying something). I had not the least hint that I wouldn’t be home and in bed until around 3 a.m.
(Does anyone else think it isn’t fair that after these things the kids crash and sleep and get better quickly, while the parents have to function the next morning, and will be exhausted for days :)?)
We never know what is going to happen. We need the Lord. We need Him all the time. That’s true whether we remember it or not. Sometimes, we get those sudden reminders of how much we need Him, but whether the reminders come or not, we need Him.
It’s a very good thing to be in fellowship with Him. That’s true whether we’re in the crisis or not, but I’d hate to face the crises of life without Him.
Stick close to the Lord. You’ll never regret it.
