Tomorrow is the Devil’s Day, But Today is God’s

“Remember the words of Solomon: ‘Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowesth not what a day may bring forth’ (Proverbs 27:1). ‘Serious things tomorrow,’ said a heathen, to one who warned him of coming danger; but his tomorrow never came. Tomorrow is the devil’s day, but today is God’s. Satan cares not how spiritual your intentions may be, and how holy your resolutions, if they are only fixed on tomorrow. Oh, give not place to the devil in this matter! answer him, ‘No: Satan! It shall be today: today.'”

– J. C. Ryle, Thoughts for Young Men, p. 9 (emphasis in original)
