5.8.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Unknown


PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• One of the biggest struggles I deal with in my Christian journey is trusting the unknown to God.
I want a map.
I want the details.
It’s the side-effect of being a control-freak.
But we serve a God who often operates on a need-to-know-basis for that very reason—He wants us to trust Him.
This week, I’ve had several friends reach out to me with prayer concerns.
Some based on great news and some with serious issues.
And at the root of each one is an unknown.
That is why adopting a verse like 2 Corinthians 5:7 is so important.
Step-by-step into the unknown future, we have to remember, “for we walk by faith, not by sight.”
We are holding on to Jesus while He leads the way.
We can’t always see what’s around the bend or over the hill, but we can always trust Him.
It’s a daily decision to say to God, “I am trusting in the unknown future You have planned for me because I know You love me and whatever happens, You have a plan. I know that You are bigger than my fears of the unknown and that wherever You take me, You will be with me.”
Declare it and own it.
The enemy would fill our heads with doubts but we can’t let those doubts take root in our hearts.
Declare the power of Jesus’ name and embrace the unknown over the fears and insecurities.
Because here’s the truth—Nothing is unknown.
While we may not know, God does.
So we don’t need to worry about an unknown.
It doesn’t exist except in our own minds.
Today, as you pray, thank God for knowing everything past, present, and future.
Thank Him that He has a plan, even if we don’t always know the details.
Ask the Holy Spirit to give you peace to trust and focus on Christ, knowing He will never leave you.
