GOD knows. GOD knows everything. In that we are to find peace. But I know for me, I want to know everything. I want to see into the future. Just for minimal planning – what a great gift that would be. But the greater gift is in peace; the peace that GOD knows everything because GOD’s perfect plan in in place.
I need to learn to simply rest in that. Sometimes it comes fairly naturally and sometimes it is interrupted by my own doubts, fears and worry. GOD tells us not to worry but to keep our eyes on JESUS and leave all else to HIM.
I love my family and my life here. But I also know that I have a place where I will go that is going to be so indescribably magnificent and there is such peace in that as well. GOD promises us that he will never leave or forsake us. HE will always be our comforter and will keep us safe. GOD keeps his promises even when we sin and boy do we sin. We sin when we do not even realize we are sinning. JESUS is all about that. It is that JESUS walked to the cross and took on our sins so that we no longer live condemned lives but that we also know that we are not of this world but can still have peace and joy while occupying it.
SO I my crystal ball is JESUS and I will keep my eyes on HIM and no matter what this life brings, I got this. I got it through the mercy of my LORD. I thank GOD for this grace because without it I would be lost.
PEACE, JOY and LOVE – all gifts from GOD and fruits of the spirit. No need for fortune telling, crystal balls – just the ability to rest in my LORD. THAT is all I NEED.
