It’s interesting to me the things people will try in order to figure out what’s going to happen next: astrology, horoscopes, reading tea leaves, consulting with people, bio-rhythms.
But they’re going to the wrong source because the only one who knows what’s going to happen next is God.
The Bible says He’s able to be in the past, the present, and the future all at the same time. That should give us great confidence in God. He not only knows about the future, He’s there in the future. He not only walks with us day-by-day, He can also walk in our future.
If I know that God knows all my tomorrows – today — then I should ask for advice. The things you don’t know, God can tell you about. He’s not going to lay out your whole life all at once, telling you everything that will happen in your life. If He did, you’d likely get very discouraged or prideful or both. Instead, He gives it to you a little bit at a time.
Here’s what I’d suggest, when you get up in the morning, go over your schedule with the Lord.
Pray, “Father, You’ve already seen this day that I’m about to experience. Tell me the things that are important today and then help me to focus on them.”
So when Ogo Okwonna put up thus picture I couldn’t help but laugh and agree with her. It’s not like we don’t know our good and not-so-good qualities but we just like a form of assurance and conviction to it. We want others to see and know that “this is who I am o”. We are moved mostly by sight so anything for a physical “show off” isn’t bad, even me sef 😢 no doubt it feels good to see how you’d look when you’re 150 years old, or who can kill for you, where you’d meet your future hubby (mine said COZA Abuja, what a joy unspeakable!) etc which leads to in wonder how this astrologist come about this, I’m thinking long time deep research.
Now sometimes we find out that everything isn’t entirely true, guess work enters in it and then it makes us doubt our personalities. Does it mean I can be stubborn when actually you’re not or you are a little, this makes you want to “try out” the stubbornness since “they said” you have stubborn trait in you 😂😂😂 and when you exhibit it, you feel well that’s how my personality is!
Truth is you can be more, and that’s not who your personality is exactly! God knows your future. Now what let’s say i haven’t met my husband yet, does it mean I should carry a ply card saying “Husband this is me, I’m waiting” or “Dear hubby, I was told I can locate you here” in front of COZA Abuja (well wouldn’t mind doing this in that church o!) or the person that claims to be our friend that can kill for you ends up trying to destroy you?
All am saying is don’t baseyour hope in all those things, God knows your future and only Him can direct the course of your life.
