If we looked only at the headlines every day, we would have good reason
to be pessimistic about the future. But don't forget two important truths.
First, the future is in God's hands, and nothing takes Him by surprise.
He is sovereign over the history of the world as well as your own personal
histories, and behind the scenes He is at work to accomplish His purposes.
Second, never forget that even when the future is unclear, God is with
those of us who are trusting Christ as our Savior and Lord, and He helps
us. No matter what the future holds for you-no matter what today
holds for you-you do not face it alone if you know Christ.
The Lord reigns forever
