Are you worried about the future?

The future is a weird place that we all like to visit from time to time. As humans we just cannot help but spend time in an imagined future, full of hopes and dreams. But, for many of us, the future is filled with anxieties, worries and fears. What if I don’t make it? What if I don’t get that dream house? What if I end up alone? What if, what if, what if? It is an endless list…

Because it is the end of the year, everyone is thinking of the near future, 2019!!It is almost here, but we have already started saying what we want or hope for it to look like. Truth is, these are just more dreams. We have no way of knowing if our resolutions will actually come to pass. We can only hope that they do and put in as much work as we can to try and get there. But, are we ever really in control of what is going to happen to us?

Today I had a revelation. I was reading  Psalm 139:5 which says :

You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head

God goes before us, into our future and follows us, into the past. This means He already knows what the future holds and what we have been through before. He has seen it already.  What this means for me is that, there is no amount of worrying that is going to change what God has already planned for me. There is no amount of hard work that will change his purpose either. What this also means is that, when you surrender to His will for your life, you can live a life free from worry. If you pray for His will to be done in your life and trust that it will, then there is no need to be uncertain.

This was liberating for me. I am walking into 2019 with a certain feeling that I am going to WIN and everything is going to be just fine. That is a winning mindset.

  1. Well said! That is why I don’t make new year resolutions. Everything doesn’t have to work like you planned. I’ve realised that sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it can lead you to something even better!! I trust that God knows better!

    1. Thanks a lot for reading and commenting. Yes, we waste time with these resolutions if God is not part of it. If God is part of it, even if it goes another way you just know everything will work out in the end.
