What If God Has Planned Your Future?
If God has planned your future, there is no such thing as fate. Fate is
impersonal. Fate says blind and invisible forces determine whatever I do
and whatever is done to me. There’s no use trying; whatever will be will
If God has planned your future, then the three Persons who love you the
most—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, have
mapped the route for you. You cannot be more secure.
Christians disagree about exactly how God plans your future, how he
takes into account your desires and free will, but all should agree that the
future is set. God says he “makes known the end from the beginning,”
and “works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will”
(Isa 46:10; Eph 1:11).
God easily plans your future because he exists outside of time. He is the
Lord of time, for he created time. Jesus is Lord of the past; you can give
all your regrets to him. Jesus is Lord of the future; you can give all your
fears to him. Jesus is Lord of the present. You can give this day to him.
Do it now.
