[Jesus said,] “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”
If we could predict the future, we assume that we would have a carefree life. We could forecast the stock market, know which team wins the ball game, dress perfectly for tomorrow’s weather, and avoid problems before they cross our path.
But the truth is this: if we could see everything the future holds the way God sees it, most of us would be paralyzed with fear. We would glimpse unexpected events, unpredictable changes, and terrifying trials that we could not imagine overcoming. In the face of such monumental obstacles, we forget the infinite power of our sovereign Lord and King.
Our Father has everything in control. He has left his Spirit with us to reassure us and to guide us through the perilous times ahead. Your future holds nothing that God has not already seen and overcome. We can rest in the security of his power.
