No fear for the future.
Psalm 139: 16 (NLT)
16 “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.”
In my youth and my young adult life, I didn’t fear my future; I was sure and felt nothing could shake me. I used to be bold and took the bull by the provable horns. It struck me that as I grew older, I became more concerned about my life, my future and what would become of me. Then I read these powerful words and realized that nothing I do would change my future. The Lord God saw me in my mom womb, and my entire life is in a book of life. So why did I feel insecure and worried about my future? The not knowing, feelings of insecurity caught up with me. Stopping my feelings of insecurity, I realized that God was in control over my life. He knew everything about me. I didn’t have to fear the future. My life is in the Book of Life, and I am free to live my life today.
Prayer Heavenly Father, I believe You have a good future in place for me, and I accept it regardless of my circumstances.
Lord, I believe in Your words of promise spoken over my life and agree that You know best for me, as You have taken me by my right hand I walk confidently in You. In Jesus name, Amen.
