I Can Face Tomorrow!

A world without effective communication would be chaotic. The constant emphasis on communication on different levels shows how significant it really is. Can you imagine people not talking to each other at home, school or work? Exchanging our ideas, thoughts and feelings keeps us moving to better understanding and productivity. Communicating with God through prayer, however, goes way beyond our secular conversations (Isaiah 55:8).

I often ponder over how limited we are in knowledge and understanding in comparison with our God of all Wisdom. Our picture of a perfect world is subject to change any minute, no matter what we say or do. It’s out of our control! Life itself is likened to a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes (James 4:14). Sometimes I wonder what I would have done differently if ‘I knew then what I know now. These thoughts open my eyes to my helplessness and desperate need for God to hold my hand, guide every step and keep my life in order. Feelings of not knowing my right from my left and uncertainty about the future are real and a reminder that God is Lord over all and I am not! 

We may not know what tomorrow holds but, Christ Follower, because Jesus Christ lives, we can face tomorrow! There is no need for fear and anxiety because there is hope in our God, who knows it all. He declares the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). Having received Jesus as Lord, we have direct access and a living relationship with God.

God wants us to regularly communicate with Him through prayer, submitting our will to His own and believe He will make perfect all that concerns us. We can trust God to lead us in uncertain and confusing times as we constantly lay our burdens at the Throne of grace. I encourage you to make every day a life changing one and an adventure with God through prayer. You can be an instrument of peace, empowered by God to reflect His love. Prayer changes things and God speaks to us giving us directions for life.  The will and purposes of God are accomplished in and through us every day, establishing His kingdom and for His glory.
