When you consider your future, what do you think will happen?
Do you picture good things coming your way, or does the future feel somewhat bleak?
No one really knows the future. God rarely gives detailed insights into what is coming next. It seems that He wants us to rely on Him and not to become fixated on what will or won’t happen. This can feel disconcerting – and some become so concerned with knowing the future that they involve themselves in the occult, seeking dark powers for information about their future as if that will bring them security and comfort.
God’s Kingdom approach is quite different. He promises to be with us always; to never leave us or forsake us. His character is such that He can be trusted with our future, even though we don’t know what that future will hold.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NIV)
Rather than showing us the future, God calls us to be prepared to obey Him in any and every circumstance.
“So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.” (1 Peter 1:13 NLT)
Be ready for Jesus when He comes at the end of the age, and when He presents His will to you through the circumstances of life now.
In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.” (2 Timothy 2:20-21 NLT)
As you consider preparing for the next season of your life, is there any cleansing that ought to take place?
Do you want to be used for the noble purposes of God, or are you more concerned with seeking your own way?
We will be most fulfilled and happy in the paths of God, doing the things He created us to do. (Ephesians 2:10) Prepare your mind, your heart and your body for action. God has plans for you. Your life and the lives of those around you, are dependent on your readiness and fitness to walk in the unique purposes and calling He has for you.
