In His hands

I want to share something that settled a lot for me on a particular issue. I had struggled with this fear for a while. It is the fear of the future. The fear of what the future holds. Come with me.

The statement “My future is in God’s hands” is quite recurrent amongst believers. I got a grasp of the statement, later on, you can check Psalms 31:15 for context.

My future is in God’s hands is not a statement of nonchalance; not a statement of little concern; not a statement of purposelessness, neither is it of idleness. It is a statement that comes from an understanding of the fact that though we may not know tomorrow, we know “The One” who holds tomorrow and we are sure that He will keep our feet from stumbling (Psalms 66:9) and He will be a lamp to guide our feet and the light to our path (Psalms 119:105).

What we infer by the statement is that God will lead us into our tomorrow despite the uncertainties surrounding our lives. Instead of fretting, we choose to follow His leading. We choose faith over fear, we choose to trust in God’s sufficiency and direction.

When we say our future is in God’s hands, we are saying that our father cares about us even more than we do about ourselves. Luke 12:27-29. 

Therefore, we will seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. We will be men who will be diligent in whatever our hands find doing. We will redeem the time for the days that are evil and we will gladly wait on God as He leads on.

Luke 12

22 Then, turning to his disciples, Jesus said, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food to eat or enough clothes to wear.

 23 For life is more than food, and your body more than clothing. 

24 Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds! 

25 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

 26 And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?

27 “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 

28 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

29 “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. 

30 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs.

 31 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.

Stop worrying, keep trusting!

Even when you can’t see it, He is working, He never stops working.

Have you been in a situation like this if you have, what comfort did you receive? What help do you get? Please share, your comments might be what a person needs.
