Have you ever become discouraged while thinking about the future? You end up asking yourself questions like, “How will I ever amount to anything significant?” Or, “How I will I ever achieve goals that seem so far away and impossible?” If so, you’re not alone.
Many times we become so consumed about our future that we get stuck in our present. The enemy will seek to use our discouragement as a distraction to effectively hinder our forward progress. We will hear things like, “What’s the point of trying anyway?”
This is when we must remember that the future is not ours to manage, but the present is ours to steward. Jesus would not have us worry about tomorrow, but simply walk by faith in the moment. It takes a great weight off one’s shoulders when they are able to surrender their future to Jesus.
Jesus is the best manager of your future.
So take a load off.
Rest in the good intentions of Jesus.
Always remember, the best thing you can do for your tomorrow is follow Jesus today.
Matthew 6:34 – Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
This is great! Thanks for the reminder 😊
And remember God is in control. He may allow trials, he may want to refine you, but it is all part of His perfect plan. Trust him.
He is in control! I hope and pray things are well with your family.
This touched a chord in my life as I watch my young adult children grapple with the future. I sent it off to them as a reminder to trust God and highlighted the part that stated we are to be stewards of the present. That is a profound lesson! Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
God bless you Kay! God is always working in the “now.”
