You are currently viewing OVERCOMING FEAR OF THE FUTURE


“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”. – John 16:33

Have you ever found yourself in a state where you are overly worried about what the future holds for you? We all have dreams, plans, and goals for the years to come. Sometimes, we may wonder and become fearful about how the future will unfold for us.

But in all of our plans and worries, we need to trust that God is in control. It is better to continue in prayer and supplication rather than allowing anxiety to settle in our hearts. When we let fear in, it creates doubt about God and His plans for us. Yet, He is God, who knows all things, even the future that is to come.

In Jeremiah 29:11, He says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” If God says His plan is to give us a future, why worry? Trust that His plans are perfect and good!

All He requires of us is to walk in alignment with His will, obey His instructions, yield ourselves to His direction, and live a consecrated life to Him. One way to achieve this is to live a life devoted to prayer and studying the word.

With that, we can rest assured that God will always lead us in the way we should go.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, help us to look to the future with great joy in our hearts. May we never be lost in the fear of the future. Amen.
