I have been reading a lot about the solar eclipse that is coming tomorrow. There are all kinds of views on what the eclipse means and people are gearing up for a spectacular view.
While I was thinking about everything that is going on in our country, rumors of wars, protests, etc., I realized I could easily begin to fear what the future holds. Thankfully, scripture reminds us as believers, that we have nothing to fear.
Here are 3 reasons we can have faith that our future is in His hands.
1. God is in control. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
I don’t know what we’re going to face this week. You don’t, either. But I can tell you without a doubt that God is in control. It may not always seem that way because we see things through a human perspective. God sees the bigger picture.
2. God is never caught off guard. Isaiah 46:9-10, “Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! I am God, and there is none like me. Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.”
Sometimes I think when something happens, we think it’s a surprise to God. Nothing could be farther from the truth. He alone knows the future. Not only does he know it, he holds it!
3. God is on His throne! Psalm 47:8, “God reigns above the nations, sitting on his holy throne.”
Don’t ever doubt that God is on his throne. He’s there and whatever we face, He is with us. Trust him!
I’m so thankful the cross has the final word…
Have a blessed Sunday!
