Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
The end of another year is approaching, and people are already predicting what the new year holds. A year from now most of them will have missed the target!
The fact is that no one knows the future—except God. We even know so little about the world that we live in. No doubt scientists will continue to uncover astonishing facts about the universe. But even then, they will only know a minuscule amount compared with the total sum of potential knowledge.
But god is infinite! He knows it all because He created it in the first place. We will always be bewildered and confused by what we don’t know, if we are honest. We don’t even know our immediate future; as James said, “You do not know what will happen tomorrow” (James 1:14).
What should this mean? It should give us humility before God, and it should give us trust—trust in there God who does know our futures, and who works all things for His glory. You can trust all your tomorrows to Him!
Romans 11:33New King James Version (NKJV)
33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
