Word of Encouragement-Future

September 14th, 2021

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Word of Encouragement is Future.

The future is the time yet to come.  Corrie Ten Boom, who was placed in a concentration camp for helping the Jews escape from the Nazis, once said, “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”

We don’t know specifically what will happen tomorrow, but with God in our lives, we can anticipate the future with hope rather than dread. God has a perspective on the future. He inspired the prophecies in the Bible. He has revealed certain events that have yet to take place.

The LORD said in Jeremiah 29:11, “I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Find encouragement in the hopeful future that God has prepared for those who seek Him in the Year of Endurance.
