  • Proverbs 27 has a sobering reminder: "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring." Life can turn on a dime. But honestly, most of us think we control it. I did until my son died and I realized how small and powerless I really am. Hey, if you think you run the world that's an illusion. People will tell you that your destiny is in your hands and you have what it takes. The Bible reminds you to stay dependent on God and humble about life. It could change in a heartbeat.

Ron: Most of us are living with the illusion of control.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Proverbs 27 has a sobering reminder: “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.” Life can turn on a dime. But honestly, most of us think we control it. I did—until my son died and I realized just how small and powerless I really am. James quotes this scripture in the New Testament saying, “You are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (James 4:14 ESV)

Hey, if you think you run the world that’s an illusion. People will tell you that your destiny is in your hands and you have what it takes. The Bible reminds you to stay dependent on God and humble about life. It could change in a heartbeat. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
