How do you know what is going to happen tomorrow? For the length of your lives is as uncertain as the morning fog-now you see it; soon it is gone. What you ought to say is, "If the Lord wants us to, we shall live and do this or that." James 4:14-15 TLB
Today an anointed man of God went home to be with Jesus. Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty of Victory Christian Center in Tulsa, OK died at 4:04am. He was diagnosed with cancer in October. Pastor Daugherty was 57 years old. The people he has pastored for 30 years are so grateful that he didn’t say, “I’ll start pastoring tomorrow.” They received the gift that God placed in him because he used it to minister life to those God put before him.
I am grieved at the loss of a great man of God but it has pricked me to think on my life. Am I giving each day of my life to the role that God has placed before me? Or am I wasting time thinking I’ll always have tomorrow?
What about you? How are you capitalizing on the days that God has given you? Are you filling up and emptying out every day?
