“Replace what you don’t know about the future,
with what you do know about God.”
I realized I don’t know anything about the future. I never have. I just trick myself into thinking I do. Now, I know for sure, I know nothing about what may happen today, let alone tomorrow. So, what do I do? How do I settle my anxious, worried heart? How do I stay calm in this turbulent sea? I remember God. God is my refuge and strength. God is good. God is kind. God’s mercies never end. God is faithful. God heals. God forgives. God redeems. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. God is infinite, immutable, omniscient and omnipresent. He will never leave me or forsake me. He is my holy Father, and in Him I can trust. The future lies in his hands, therefore I can stay calm. When I remember that, when I remember my heavenly father, who is always at work for our good today and tomorrow, I rest. I rest in Him and his graciousness.
Find rest, O my soul in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
