Are you afraid of the unknown?

Are you afraid of the unknown?

Are you afraid of the unknown? Many of us keep away from the unknown paths and prefer to stay in the comfort zone where we can handle things. But we are not called to stay where we can handle things. We are called to go wherever God leads us and let him handle things for us.

With the wise words of Corrie Ten Boom “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” We do not need to be afraid of the unknown when we know God who is in charge of the future.

But I am trusting you, O Lord,
    saying, “You are my God!”
My future is in your hands
(Psalm 31:14-15a, NLT,*)

Are you afraid of the unknown?

Our future is in God’s hands. There is no need to be afraid of the unknown. The future is unknown but it is in God’s hands. Hence we can relax. All is well when we are in Christ. Because in Christ we have everything we will ever need.

Someone has said, “A life without Christ is a hopeless end, A life with Christ is an endless hope.” I agree with this 100%. Without Christ, there is no hope. With Christ, there is endless hope no matter how bleak or scary the future looks like.

So we have always a lot to celebrate each and every day. We are God’s beloved children. Our future with God is bright. He gives us hope upon hope.

Gracious God,
Forgive us for forgetting the future is in your hands.
Help us to remember what you’ve done for us
and rejoice in it each and every day.
Empower us for victorious living.
In Jesus’ name,

Q4U: Are you afraid of the unknown? Why/why not?

Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you embrace the future with God!
