Do You Worry about the Future?
Ephesians 1:21 There Christ rules over all forces, authorities, powers, and rulers. He rules over all beings in this world and will rule in the future world as well.
Do you worry about the future? Are you constantly watching preachers on TV or listening to preachers on the radio pertaining to prophecy of the future? Do you get yourself riled up and worried? What will happen? The troubles that are coming? What we will do to survive in those days?
While I feel that it's benefiial to be aware of these things, I don't believe it's profitable to worry or obsess about them. I have a hard time with evangelists today that speak mostly on prophecy or the end of times~ and for the most part, that is all that they mostly speak on. It's all happenstance. Yes, the end will someday come, and we have the Bible to follow for instruction, but we can only speculate so much. We will not actually know until it happens. I am not saying I don't like these speakers personally, I just would like to see them apply the Bible to our current everyday lives with the same effort with which they seem concerned about the future.
You do not have to be fearful. If you are saved through Christ Jesus you are sealed until the Day of Redemption. God's grace is on us.. He would not have you going through your day worrying that the end of the world is coming.
So, if you are worried turn your thoughts over to Him. Tell Him your heart and allow him to bring you peace and comfort. And, He surely will.
