Who will be our future?

Psalm 91

Since the beginning of time, man has wanted to know his future. It is doubtless from this desire that the “practice of divination” that the Bible clearly condemns was born (Deuteronomy 18:10). In fact, the future is built on two sorts of circumstances.

Those we cannot foresee:

In this case, man must learn to trust God entirely; he who will guide, provide and intervene. “Do not worry about tomorrow,” Jesus said (Matthew 6:34).

Those that we prepare today:

The present is often the seed of the future. “What a man sows, he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7). This is why it is important not to know the future, but to live well in the present, with the Lord’s help. “Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you” (Proverbs 24:14).

Faith and wisdom!

These are the two key words for a blessed present and future!
