DAY 23: TRUSTING GOD FOR THE FUTURE

Is my future safe in His hands?
When Wendy and I were beginning our family, we spent long hours talking about what kind of world our children would encounter. While we still wonder, we’re confident in this: the future is safely in God’s hands. We can trust Him, no matter what happens.
How we view history is important to understanding the present and future. The Bible makes clear that history has a beginning and an end. It is not circular, as some religions contend, but linear. Three major markers define the trajectory of man’s journey.

  • Creation. The Bible’s opening phrase is, “In the beginning” (Genesis 1:1) and Jesus was present: “He was in the beginning with God” (John 1:2). From that point, history unfolds systematically and progressively.
  • Redemption and Restoration. The birth, death and resurrection of Jesus became the fulfillment of God’s plan for a restored relationship with His creation—and the fulcrum upon which all world events turn.
  • Consummation. History will culminate in what Paul calls the “consummation,” or “summing up,” when God will “gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him” (Ephesians 1:10).

We are now in the period leading up to the consummation. Day-to-day events may seem random and haphazard. But nothing is random with God. Each person (including you!) and each event has a purpose—whether a birth, a death, an election result or a breakthrough in technology. What this means for us, especially as the end draws near, is not to be passive, but to be watchful, attentive and engaged, completely trusting Him in all things (see Matthew 24:42).
Come what may, we can be certain that the Lord of all history—past, present and future— will write the last glorious chapter. The future is in His hands, and He is trustworthy!
KEY VERSE: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 21:6).
