DAY 4 (DEVOTIONAL PLAN)

The future for the Believer


Question: Why is it so difficult to allow God to be in control?


Maybe we are just stubborn or we do not like the following guidelines. However, if you believe in Christ, you are disobeying him by not allowing him to fulfill the promises he has for your life.


It is time to let go and let God.


Easier said than done, right?

The best way I can describe why trusting God is important, a story found in Mark. When Jesus calms the storm (Mark 4: 35-41) :


35As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). 37But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water.

38Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?”

39When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. 40Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

41The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!”


Question: How many times have you doubted God and figured that you’d just do it your way?


Christ already won the battle. Doubt is just an illusion of fear. He died for us so we can live in peace and not be afraid when things get hard. Our strength is our faith. Our faith becomes stronger when we are disciplined in faith. There will be good and bad days, however, the battle is already won. The bad days are reminders as to how strong our faith is.


The future for a believer: Jeremiah 29:11


The verse we all know, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
