Promises about our future.

Have you ever wondered about your future?  What's going to happen to you, is there any guarantee about anything at all?  Let's check it out and see if there is something in the Bible that tells us.

Jeremiah 29: 11  "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.  They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Philippians 3: 20,21  "Our citizenship is in heaven.  And we eagerly await a Savior from there, who by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control,  who will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body."

Revelation 21:4  "There will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

1 Corinthians 2: 9,10  "As it is written, eye has not seen nor ear has heard.  No mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him'___but God has revealed to us by His Spirit.  The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God."

1 John 3:2  "We are children of God and what we will be has not yet been made known.  But we know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is."

There are some verses here that have special meaning for me because of my circumstances. The first verse here says that His plans for us are for good ad not disaster, to give us a future and a hope.  I love that one and our citizenship is in heaven, everything is under His control.  Then there will be no more death mourning or crying or pain.  I have suffered each of those several times and I am looking forward to that time when there will be no more.  No mind has conceived what God has prepared for us.  We are His children and when He comes we will be like Him and we shall see Him as He is.   That is a lot to look forward to and our future looks sooooo good compared to what some people believe, like hell fire suffering for eternity.  I am so glad we have a loving God that would never cause suffering like that, it is one of Satan's counterfeits.  Glad we have the Bible to find what the truth really is.
