The Unknown

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” – Corrie Ten Boom

What we know about God shapes how we face the future. Our faith and our fears are both defined by what we believe about the One who holds us in His hand. Everybody’s tomorrows are uncertain, but we can be certain about the heart of God. Here are ten things you can be certain about even in the face of an uncertain tomorrow.

  1. God loves you. Period. No matter what.
  2. He has more than enough grace. You can’t, won’t, be able to exhaust His supply.
  3. He has a purpose for you.
  4. The cross and the empty tomb are unbreakable, unshakable realities.
  5. You are not alone. Ever.
  6. We are weak, but He is strong.
  7. God is bigger than _______________. No matter what you put in the blank, God is still bigger.
  8. Mustard seed faith is more than enough.
  9. His peace and power are a prayer away.
  10. Jesus really is the answer. No matter your question.

My Jesus Resolution today is to remember what I know about God. Sometimes the future looks scary. It is easy for me to get overwhelmed, over-worried, and overwrought. Instead of creating a list of all of the might-happens, what-ifs, and I-don’t-knows, I am going to recite all the reasons I have to trust my God. He is faithful, good, true, holy, loving, and full of mercy. He was that yesterday and today. He will be the same again tomorrow.

Thank you for this. It’s funny how sometimes you don’t even know what it is you need to hear until God whispers it in your ear that He knows. I’m leading a small group study using your book, Immeasurably More and the way that He is using you in this group has been remarkable.
