"And she looks to the future with confidence."
- Proverbs 31:25b
This scripture, however, brings out that we should be optimistic and confident in the future bringing good things. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "'For I well know the thoughts that I am thinking toward you,' declares Jehovah, 'thoughts of peace, and not of calamity, to give you a future and a hope.'"
There are so many promises in the Bible for us to look forward to:
- Wickedness, warfare, crime and violence will be gone
(Psalm 37:10, 11; Psalm 46:9; Isaiah 2:4)
- Food shortages will not exist
(Psalm 72:16; Psalm 67:6)
- There will be peace between humans and animals
(Isaiah 11:6-9; 65:25)
- Sickness will vanish
(Isaiah 33:24; 35:5, 6)
Today's Day 22 Challenge is:
Review the scriptures above to strengthen your faith.
Perhaps you can read them from your own copy of the Bible.
And feel confident that God's promises will come true for you.
