Trying To Guess The Future Is Futile

The Lord has taught us in several places in His loving word that worrying about the future isn’t worth our time. “O que sera, sera” as we learn in Brazil! What is going to be is what is going to be, with God’s blessings.

In Matthew 6:25-34 we learn, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”

We also learn to cast our anxieties in Him and to not worry about our life…

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5-7. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7.

Trying to constantly guess what will happen in the future is likely to make people more stressed which can eventually turn into anxiety. Putting our trust in Him is all that we need.

Stop trying to control your life when only God can control your steps. Follow Him and trust. Be the light that God has asked you to be. He will take care of you and your family.
