Psalms 37:37 NKJV
Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace.
This one thing is guaranteed, the blameless man has a great future full of peace, one that is secured. The wicked man also has a future but it is not a good one.
One thing you have to realise with God is that he shows us the future and not necessarily the beginning.
Abraham was shown the stars in the sky and the sand on the shores to depict the number of descendants that he would have but he had no idea his long he would have to wait for a child.
Joseph was shown a glimpse of his future as a ruler and great leader but God showed him nothing about the trouble he would have to contend with before that future was a reality.
Jobs story is a good depiction of our Christian journey. The enemy looks for opportunities to derail us and to bring pain and fear in our life so that we can curse God. Jobs story was filled with pain and loss but that was not the end.
Job 42:12 NKJV
Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; …….
That should be our encouragement as well. The Lord has already blessed our latter days more that our former. Our future is safe and secure, we should stay focused and trust in God, he has a good plan.
Compare the suffering of Job and what you are going through currently… Job held on to his faith in God to the end, what will you do?
Does knowing that God has a good end for you give you the strength to keep holding on?
The bible is full of Gods promises about our future, find some and write them down so that you can remind yourself often.
