Sometimes it would be nice to know the future.
Abraham and Sarah had that knowledge.
Gen 17:19 God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac;
Gen 18:10 And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.”
Abraham and Sarah are told they will have a son. They will call him Isaac. And they even knew the time he would be born.
Often the desire for futuristic knowledge isn’t about having a baby. More likely it’s for next weeks $250 million lotto numbers, the final score for the next Superbowl, or penny stocks that will increase in value 500%!
Such knowledge is selfish, greedy, and temporary.
There is one future you can know.
God has said;
I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord; Jer 29:11-14
God’s future for you is one full of hope and promises. It’s full of love, forgiveness, and grace. It’s also eternal.
The future belongs to God. Join in.
Abba, my future is in You. I trust you with it. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
