“I can tell you what is going to happen even before it happens.” Isaiah 46:10
During the 1990's, highly educated and experienced economists predicted doom for the American economy, yet we experienced quarter after quarter of improved profits and higher productivity. Stock market consultants forecasted a market decline and advised clients to switch into safer financial investments, yet the stock market continued to climb to extraordinary heights.
The reality is that no one really knows what the economy will do. As someone once remarked, "If you lined up all the economists in the world one after another, you wouldn't have enough to reach a conclusion."
Now consider the foreknowledge of God. At one time, nothing existed but God, yet at any point in time, He knew the past, present, and future. He knew when He would create the universe, that Adam and Eve would sin, and that He would send a Savior.
To prove His ability to predict the future, God gave us hundreds of prophecies in the Bible. One that fascinates me is the prophecy that the Jewish people would be called together as a nation.
The temple of Jerusalem was destroyed in A.D. 70 and the Jewish people scattered from their homeland. What were the chances that a people without a country could survive as a nation? Every other nation since then has disappeared into oblivion. But in 1948, the Jewish people reestablished their homeland in Israel. The odds are astronomical of that happening after nearly two millennia.
God's prophecies are 100 percent accurate because He not only knows the future, He also controls the future.
Your View of God Really Matters…
What are your two or three top concerns about the future? Knowing that God controls the future, and that He loves you, give your concerns to Him and receive His peace.
Read God’s Word Today…
Isaiah 42:8-9 NLT “I am the Lord; that is My name! I will not give My glory to anyone else, nor share My praise with carved idols. Everything I prophesied has come true, and now I will prophesy again. I will tell you the future before it happens.”
GOD, because You know everything, I will go to You with all my questions and concerns.
