Fast Forward?

Have you ever met someone that likes to read the ending of a book, before they start to read the story? Or, some that likes to fast forward a movie and skip all the boring parts?

Well, what if we could fast forward our lives? What if we could skip to 2021 and miss out on all this chaos we’re living in now?

Did you know that it says in the Bible that we (Christians) are to welcome trials? That sounds crazy, right? Why would we want to be grateful for the birth of this pandemic?

Christians know their future. They can see the blessings and mercy given to us each day and can persevere trials with prayer. How? Because we know there’s a purpose in these trials. We know that no matter what happens, or how long it takes to get through this tragedy, that God is near. He sees what’s going on, and He’s protecting His children.

Ask God to give you your vision of the future. Be determined in your heart that God’s purpose in your life is being fulfilled.

Scared of our future as a nation? Stay the course, seek God in all this and never give up on His promises for those who love and follow Him.

James 1:3-4 – “for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
