Face the Future

facethefuture
 
None of us knows what the future holds, but if you have given your life to Christ then at least you know Who holds your future.
 
We all have to face the future; facing it with the Lord’s guidance allows you to face it with confidence.
 
Psalm 31 is a psalm that David probably penned when he was persecuted by Saul. It is a mixture of prayers, praises, and professions of his confidence in God.
 
Psalm 31:1-3, “In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be ashamed; in Your righteousness deliver me. Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; be to me a rock of strength, a stronghold to save me.  For You are my rock and my fortress; for Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.”
 
David prays, that God in His righteousness would deliver, protect and shelter him in his troubles.
 
He sought after God’s providence for security and comfort;  by His grace to keep him safe and guide him in life.
 
Everyone on earth is completely ignorant of the future, but God is all-knowing and by His Spirit you can receive leadership and guidance to deliver, protect, and shelter you as you face the future.  
 
As you face the future, don’t worry or fret; pray, search the Word, and ask the Lord to guide you by His Spirit.  
God’s infallible guide, the person of the Holy Spirit, will navigate you to the place He wants you to be.
 
The Holy Spirit desires to guide you into God’s truth and a more intimate relationship with Christ. 
 
He wants to lead you through the decisions of today knowing how they fit in the Lord’s will for tomorrow.
 
Seek the Lord and Face the Future!
