THE WHAT IFS....BUT GOD!!
Wondering what is going to happen or what could have happened will likely drive you bonkers. Many like to speculate about the 'what ifs'. No one knows the future so this is wasted energy. You reason and guess and it causes a lack of peace. Do you fear the future and the unknown? The catastrophes that 'could be?' First the Bible says 'fear not' and to 'not fret because of evil doers' and 'that He will not let the righteous beg bread' and 'a single sparrow does not fall to the ground without heavenly father knowing it". So if we know all this what causes speculation and curiosity?
Do you trust God for the future? Wondering how or when you will die or what is going to happen tomorrow does not matter. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 8:7 "Since no man knows the future, who can tell him what is to come?" 2 Chronicles 16:9 reminds us that "the eyes of The Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. " James 4:13-14 says "Now listen you who say today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city and spend a year there carry on business and make money. Why you don't even know what your life will be like tomorrow.What is your life? You are a mist that appears awhile and then vanishes."
Give any concerns about the days ahead to God. Relax and enjoy each day and trust God for your tomorrows.
PRAYER: Lord God I thank you for your word which guides me daily. When my anxious heart starts to wonder help me know that only you know the future. In Jesus name. Amen.
