Lord of the Future

Sharing what Dr. David Jeremiah had to say today...

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious. 1 Peter 2:7

Yesterday was Election Day in the United States, and perhaps today you're feeling troubled if one of your candidates lost or if some ballot initiative that you supported failed. Sometimes we worry even when our candidates win. The political consultant, Robert Strauss, was a Washington insider who advised presidents from Lyndon Johnson to the first George Bush. He once said: "Everybody in government is like a bunch of ants on a log, floating down a river. Each one thinks he is guiding the log, but it's really just going with the flow."

The truth is—the Lord holds sovereign sway over the currents of history. These are troubling times, but we have a powerful and precious Savior. It's enough for us to leave the future in His hands, being fully persuaded that He has the power to keep what we have committed unto Him against that day.Let's pray for our leaders, intercede for our nation and world, and trust the Jesus Christ as Lord of the future.

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

I truly felt like I left it all in His hands. It has left me at peace with the events of the last few days.

Have a great day, Pam.
