What will this week bring? Joy, sorrow, pain, laughter and probably some surprises as well. But whatever life brings this week, remember, there are no surprises with God. “Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15:18). Thankfully we don’t know the future, for it is a burden we could not carry with us. But our wise, loving God and Father knows all about it, and we can trust Him for what is best.
Remember too, that while the future as far as this life is concerned may be uncertainty at best, yet the future for the believer as far as the next life, is certainty beyond a shadow of a doubt. “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast” (Hebrews 6:18-19).
Have a good week, and no matter what happens, “rejoice in the Lord alway” (Philippians 4:4).
