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)
God wants to be with you in increasingly deep and meaningful ways.
You can Be With Him more tangibly and significantly. It starts with you wanting to be with Him ... or at least wanting to want to be with Him.
If you look for the Lord (Psalm 105:4), you will find Him. "You will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13).
A few tools or springboards to the process of Being With God are ...
* Scripture ... 2 Timothy 3:16
* Prayer ... beyond petitioning, beyond intercession, into communion
* Stillness and Silence ... simply being with Him without demand
* Waiting Upon the Lord ... deepening and growing in faith, as we hope in Him
