Peace Family, you’re in good hands and God knows your future. I hope you can truly know that today, in the depth of your guts, whether you feel it or not.
Honey, Satan does not know your future. If he is speaking bad things over you today, I just want to encourage you that only God knows what God’s plans are. We can rest assured that He is good, and that whatever He has planned will glorify him, even bad situations which need redemption, caused by living in a fallen, sinful world. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (NIV) The Bible says God is working for the good of those who love him “in all things,” not “just in the situations that look good,” or “when the future looks hopeful,” or “when there’s no pain involved,” or “when everybody behaves themselves.”
God is watching over you, and he is worth trusting your future to. If you are hurting today or things just don’t make sense, I want to reassure you that it’s true. It reminds me of one of my favorite old hymns that goes, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future, and life is worth the living just because He lives.” He loves you more than you can comprehend, and he won’t let you fall through the cracks.
Anyway, just a few thoughts from your friendly, neighborhood Kat.
