We live by faith, not by sight.  -2 Corinthians 5:7

I enjoy gazing up at a cloudless blue sky.  The sky is a beautiful part of our great Creator's masterpiece, given for us to enjoy.  Imagine how much pilots must love the view.  They use several aeronautical terms to describe a perfect sky for flying, but my favorite is, "You can see to tomorrow."

"Seeing to tomorrow" is beyond our view.  Sometimes we even struggle to see or understand what life is throwing at us today.  The Bible tells us, Why do you not even know what will happen tomorrow.  What is your life?  You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.  -James 4:14

But out limited visibility is not cause for despair.  Just the opposite.  We trust in the God who sees all of our tomorrows perfectly, and who knows what we need as we face the challenges ahead.  The apostle Paul knew this.  That's why Paul encourages us with hopeful words:  

We live by faith, not by sight. - 2 Corinthians 5:7

When we trust God with our day as well as our unseen tomorrows, we don't need to worry about anything life throws at us.  We walk with Him and He knows what is ahead; He is strong enough and wise enough to handle it.

Prayer for Today

Lord, I know I can trust You for today and tomorrow because You are kind, good, loving, wise, and powerful. Teach me not to worry.
