While many are afraid of what will transpire tomorrow, the reason is mere fear of the unknown. Being afraid is the only motivation why many resort to seeking psychics, horoscopes, and other related mediums to know what will occur. Though there may be legitimate people that have the gift of seeing the future yet they still do not see a complete image of tomorrow. Just accept the fact that only God has the knowledge to provide exactly what we need as declared in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV)

To know that God has a plan for our future is the greatest blessing that anyone could look forward to. Stress and pressures of life is what stops us from appreciating this truth. No one can ever secure one's future because God only holds it in His hand. Therefore, having plans is good but must be anchored in God's word as stated in Proverbs 16:1,3, "To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." (NIV)

Now, what attitude should we adopt whenever tomorrow is discussed? I would like to propose two specific actions to do:

  1. Prayer as stated in Philippians 4:6, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." (NIV)
  2. Total trust and confidence in God's ability as stated in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." (NIV)

Look forward tomorrow with excitement because the best is yet to come.

Let's talk again!
