No fear of tomorrow

Early this morning, I decided to bask in God’s presence and just worship the most high. I decided to just worship the One who declared his own self to Moses as “The Lord! the Lord! a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness and truth, keeping mercy and loving-kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin…” I personally experience all of that so I would not hesitate to just spend time in worship of that God.

I was singing “I’ll forever be chasing after you”, “In your presence”, “I just want to be where you are”, “I won’t be satisfied with anything ordinary”. I sang, Because You live, I can face tomorrow. Because you live, all fear is gone. Because I know, you hold my future, my life is worth living just because you live. I sang that song with tears streaming down my face because I realized how fearless I was, facing the future, even knowing that I may have to pass “through the valley of the shadow of death” in the pursuit of the purpose of my existence.

I realized I was fearless because the One who holds my future is the One who enabled me to pass through the valley of the shadow of death in the past, unscathed. I also know beyond the shadow of a doubt that he will do it again – his rod and staff will comfort me, even in the valley.

I know deep down that I will fulfill His plan and purpose for creating me. I know that it has little to do with me, but It’s all about you Jesus, and all this is for you, for your glory and your fame. It’s not about me, as if you should do things my way. You alone are God, and I surrender to your way.

  1. The last paragraph you have there about  knowing that God will fulfill His purpose for you spoke volumes to me about resting in God. It brought certain scriptures (Ps 138:8a, Eph 2:10, Phil 2:13) to mind and it takes off the burden of trying to do things in our own strength

    For me, it changes the focus of who is truly accomplishing things and with it comes humility, which I believe is a real and intent filled preference for the will of God

    Gracias much

    • I think the focus needs to be on the One who is truly accomplishing things and with it surely comes humility. Thank you for that, Tolu. 

      I think one of the most profound though simple realizations we can come to is that we are creatures and that before we came on the scene, there was balance in the universe and after we depart from here, there will still be balance. Before humans were created, God was okay. If He says, “Take no thought for your life…” perhaps we should listen. If He says “without me, ye can do nothing…” perhaps we should agree. We did not make ourselves, he made us.
