Trusting God for the Future

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

“Then Elisha said, ‘Hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord: “Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.”’”
2 Kings 7:1 NKJV

Many were filled with panic and worry. Fear spread throughout Israel. The army of Aram was besieging the land. Food was running out and there was a “great famine.” Cornered by difficult conditions, the king blamed Elisha.

But Elisha was not afraid. In fact, He was confident in God. So confident that he declared specifically what would happen in the future. What he prophesied didn’t seem likely. But he had heard from God, and knew that His Word was true, even giving advice to others based on this confidence.

This is the kind of confidence all of us need to have in God. We can find ourselves worrying about the economy, relationships, health, or events in the world. But the Bible teaches us that God already knows the future. That, if we trust Him, we can have peace. That He is ready to take away our burdens, meet our needs, and direct our steps.

This kind of confidence is available to all who know God intimately and trust Him. In the midst of any situation, He offers us His peace. His wisdom. And His Word tells us that He knows that future, and that we can trust Him.

What issues are you facing? Do you find your heart and mind filled with fear and worry? Or are you totally trusting in God?

Commit your needs to Him, no matter how serious they might seem, or how helpless you might feel. Don’t be besieged with worry, doubt, or fear. Seek to know Him more intimately. Read His Word with more intensity. Seek to be more sensitive to His Spirit. And trust Him, for today, and the future.


Prayer: Father, I believe that You are the Creator and that You know all things. I seek Your wisdom. Please give me Your guidance, direction, and peace. Thank You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
