“My Unknown Future Is In His Hands”
my future in gods hands
by Dona Hake
“…but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching
forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of
the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
God desires that we look forward into our future with faith in our hearts. What a waste of the time it is if we spend our God given time dwelling on our pasts that have been painful. One can also be guilty of living in that place of “I wished it was how it used to be.” It is like trying to drive with our destination in mind yet our gaze is continually in the rear view mirror. Yes, there are times we need to glance in our rear view mirrors so we can proceed cautiously. Those glances serve us as a good way to proceed with caution that we do not make mistakes or put ourselves in danger. But oh how dangerous it would be if we drove our car with continual gaze in our rear view mirror. So it is in our walk with the Lord.
“The future frightens only those who
prefer living in the past.”
John Mason
God does not want us to be fearful of our future but rather we need to rejoice in the days to come knowing that He is ready to use us as He wills as we give Him our all! I read a really awesome but powerful sentence the other day and it went like this…


“My unknown future is in the hands of an all knowing God.”

  We can all have our plans and expectations for our future, and that is good but praise God that He is all knowing, and He can cause our paths to be blessed and prosperous each and every day of our lives. God bless you richly as you serve Him this day!
