What will the future bring? The media don’t predict anything good for us, one negative headline follows the next. A little virus keeps the whole world under its spell and messes up our entire lives. Every day the media keep us the latest corona numbers, the number of infected, sick and dead. Again and again new measures and restrictions to interrupt the wave.
- How are you doing in this situation?
- Does resentment, fear, worry or insecurity want to spread within you?
- Do you have a queasy feeling when you think about your future?
- Do you wonder if it will ever be the way it used to be?
- Do you care for your health, for the health of your family?
- Are you struggling with existential fears due to the economic constraints?
- Do you feel lonely because you have to do without social contacts?
Nobody knows what the future will look like. There are many different opinions, forecasts, but ultimately nobody can tell us what will happen and how long this crisis will last. It doesn’t get us any further if we just focus on the problems and constantly torment ourselves with negative thoughts. Worries and negative thoughts do not help us.
“Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair. It keeps you busy but gets you nowhere. ” Glenn Turner
Instead of listening to or looking at the latest news over and over again, we’d better ask about who is holding our future in his hands. Do you know him? It is the God who created heaven and earth and who has a good plan in store for the world and for us humans. His truth is eternal, and we can rely on his promises. He is the only one who can say something about your and my future. You can read his promises in his word, in the bible. There are words of hope and confidence that drive away your fears, worries, resentment and insecurity and give you peace and new prospects for the future.
This is what God says in Jeremiah 29:11: “I have plans for you that are full of future and hope”
In Psalm 37: 5 it is written: Confide in the Lord and don’t worry about your future. Leave them to God. He’ll do it right. “
We can decide anew every day where to direct our thoughts. On our difficult circumstances or on God who has everything under control, who is omnipotent and omniscient and whose love for us is infinite
. “God my future is in your hands.” Psalm 31:16
“So don’t worry about tomorrow – the next day will take care of itself! It is enough if each day brings its own difficulties. ”Matthew 6:34
This is why you should focus your life on God:
God knows you by the name (Isaiah 43: 1) God thinks of you Psalm (139:16) God is your refuge Psalm (62: 6-8) God fights for you in Exodus (14:14) God is always with you Matthew (28:20) God loves you John (3:16) God is your protection Psalm (119,114) God is your rock Samuel (22:32) God is your confidence and strength (Psalm 46: 2)
