Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and Savior Jesus Christ.–Titus 2:13
Yesterday was the future on the day before yesterday, but today it is the past. The march of time teaches us that tomorrow is an expectation if not a promise. While we do not know what the future will hold, we have no doubt that it will come. And biblically, there are only two ways to look at the future: in fear or by faith.
Fear and faith obey the law of physics that says two bodies cannot occupy the same space at the same time. If we are consumed with fear of the future, there is no room for faith. But if we have faith that God knows the future then fear shall be absent. Thankfully, our faith is not blind faith–the Bible gives us great details (reasons for faith) about the future. And they all find their culmination and consummation in one event–the return of the Son of God to planet earth: “Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to God,even the Father, when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
Thank God for such a certain future! Through Christ every promise of God about the future is “Yea, and in Him Amen” (2 Corinthians 1:20).–From “Turning Point”
Faith makes the uplook good, the outlook bright, the inlook favourable, and the future glorious.
