Nobody knows tomorrow!
I am sure you have not only heard that phrase repeatedly, but have also nodded in agreement or inaudibly mumbled ‘na true o’ to confirm the assertion.
What if I told you that the assertion is not entirely correct?
What if I told you that by the virtue of putting into effective use some systems, it is actually possible as an individual to know what tomorrow holds?
Let me explain!👇🏽
Taking the coronavirus pandemic into perspective, you will agree with me that several plans made by you and I and indeed millions of people world over have been thwarted, a lot of them either put on hold or cancelled outrightly.
It won’t be out of place to say that if the pandemic didn’t spring up, there are possibilities that those things we all had planned would have been coming into play at the instances we want them to… Innit?
Note: the keyword there is PLAN!
Alan Lakein defined Planning as the art of bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it.
Now, read that again slowly!☝🏽
Don’t you find rather interesting that by way of anticipation, analysis and visualization, we are able to per mutate and control the happenings of tomorrow?
You have done that severally you know?
Remember those days you are laying in bed at night thinking about how the next day will be, and boom💥, the next morning you’re wearing the exact outfit you imagined the previous day, standing at the exact spot you pictured to get a taxi and sometimes, awkwardly waving at an imaginary person from your thoughts of the last night too….you’ve been there before right?
Of course, there are several other uncountable instances where your imagination must have tried to pull up pictures of future events and you equally planned towards them and such events amazingly went just as planned.
God, however is certainly all-wise and all-knowing. He knows everything there is to know about you. He knows what you are doing now and what you did yesterday. He even knows how many hairs you have on your head.
Now, as much as we are able to plan about the future, we also need to come to terms with the fact that
God is able to decide what happens in that future, and reserves the right to override any individual’s plans.
He has intervened often in the course of events. He has had to make sure that the right people are in the right place at the right time in order that some aspect of His master plan can be fulfilled.
We all had plans going for 2020. Had it all spelt out to the letter, but “life” struck.
The big lesson here is that: you can have your whole life planned out, but life will happen, God’s plan is sometimes entirely different from ours, should that stop you from planning?
Rather, it should spur you to synchronize your plans with that of God in order for your knowledge of tomorrow to become established.
Am I communicating? 😊
