God Knows the Future

Justin Johnson

The past few months have presented a more uncertain prospect of the future than there has been in a long time. We have witnessed the confusion of political leaders and money maestros worldwide while facing the current economic crisis. Wars in the Middle East continue without any end in sight.  There seems to be no real answers provided by our politicians during an election year.  What is to come seems unclear.

People are losing their savings, their jobs, their trust in the government and the world system. As despair and fear creep across our country everyone is hopelessly looking for answers.

Common sense tells us that the answers are to be found in the one that knows the future, not those who predict future events or analyze economic charts. We have evidently seen the extent of man’s wisdom in the calamitous headlines. It is God who declares the end from the beginning (Acts 15:18).

“Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.” – Acts 15:18

God declared the rise and fall of the world’s empires hundreds of years before they were even named (Daniel 2). God knew the history of Israel before Moses was even born (Genesis 15:14).

God knows the number of hairs on your head (Matt 10:30). God knows the measure of the universe (Isa 40:12).

God knew Jeremiah before he was formed in his mother’s womb (Jer 1:5). God knows your thoughts and your intentions before you speak them (Heb 4:12; PSalm 139:4). God knows when you will die, and he knows why you will die (Heb 9:27; Rom 5:12).

God knew that he would have to pay for the sins of the world if we were ever to receive eternal life (Eph 3:9).

God, knowing of our future disobedience, prepared the plan of salvation before the first man walked on the earth so that we could be delivered from our own failures and sin (2 Tim 1:9).

God knew what you needed most and provided its details in a book for you to read and study (2 Tim 2:14-15).

All things are known of God, and he alone knows the future with firsthand authority. If answers are needed they are sure to be found in the one who knows our future. The one who also became one of us in order to deliver us from our future condemnation.

God said, “my grace is sufficient for thee” (2 Cor 12:9). How does he know? He knows the future.

Let God be true. Trust God for the answers. Read his book. Trust in God manifest in the flesh, whose name is Jesus Christ.

“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” – Colossians 2:9
