Meditate on this scripture today: Hebrews 13:8
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
We can't see our tomorrows and never know what's going to befall us but we serve the God that does! The Bible says He is the same God yesterday, today and forever! (Heb. 13:8). That means Jesus not only knows our tomorrows but orchestrates them, guides us through them, and can even change them according to His will for our lives. Jeremiah 29:11 says it this way: "For 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." So our future is planned, productive and purposeful in God!
Since we have been assured of this promise, our responsibility then is to bring our cares to Him, lean on Him for continued strength, and trust in Him to bring us through. That's how we live victoriously - from faith to faith, glory to glory. The success of our future is not in our own wisdom or understanding, but in our trusting, believing and obeying God's instructions. Proverbs 3:5-8 encourages us this way: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones."
So rest in the Lord today, bring your cares to the Lord today, be strengthened in the Lord today and have great success in the Lord today - knowing that your future has already been secured in Him.
Remember, no matter what occurs in our everyday life, whatever might catch us by surprise, it's never a surprise to Jesus - because He's the same God yesterday, today and forever!
He is ALWAYS.
Be blessed today!
