Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints… which is Christ in you, the hope of glory – Colossians 1:26-27
The one who’s born again is guaranteed of a glorious future. You can know what kind of life you’re going to have or what your future will be like. The future isn’t supposed to be a mystery. Part of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life is to show you the future: “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come”(John 16:13).
If you have received the Holy Spirit, no more should you be in the dark about the future! How does He show us the future? It’s by taking of that which belongs to Jesus, and showing it unto us: “All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you”(John 16:15). The future belongs to God. The Holy Ghost takes that future and unveils it to you through the Word. Therefore, you can tell what your life is going to be; you can plan your life.
There’re those who say, “Well, we never can tell what God’s going to do. Nobody knows tomorrow.” Some will even say, “God moves in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform.” God isn’t mysterious; it’s Satan that’s mysterious. To be mysterious means to be strange, cryptic, furtive, cagey, or unpredictable, and God isn’t that way. He gave us His Word so we can understand His will and understand His thoughts towards us.
He said in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”That expected future is one of success. As you walk in His Word, in His preordained pathways, you’ll discover that He created you for glory, honour, success and excellence. Ephesians 2:10(AMP) says, “For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. “
Dear Father, I thank you for revealing your Word to me, and helping me see myself and the glorious future you’ve prepared for me in Christ. Now I know that you’ve blessed me with a future filled with hope—a future of success, prosperity and joy, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
