Fight (for) the Future

The future is coming whether you are ready or not.

Sometimes our future is hopeful, exciting and bright.

Sometimes our future is unknown and unnerving.

Sometimes the future is predictable. That might be a good thing. It might not.

The future is coming whether you are ready or not.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11 Click To Tweet

God is the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Therefore the future is not something we should fear any more than we fear the past.

For those of us who follow Jesus, there is always hope in our future. We must embrace it. Create it. Leverage it to reclaim God’s glory.

...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. - Philippians 1:6 Click To Tweet

We risk losing the future if we hold too tightly to the past.
