Praying moves you from the past into the future – this is so true. God is a future facing God. He does remind us of His faithfulness from past actions, to demonstrate His unwavering love through the generations, however everything He wants to achieve is future focused.
God said for I know the plans I have for you, plans for a hope and a future. Before Jesus left the earth to sit at the right hand of the Father, He said In my Fathers house there are many mansions, I go to prepare a place for you. Everything about our God, Saviour and Lord is 100% future focused, everything in God’s heart is for our future and the big plan He has for us is an eternity with Him.
All aspects of the Christian life is about the future. Lets skip creation or we’ll be here forever celebrating how future focused creation is. Lets start with Salvation, this is a future based process; on the declaration of Jesus the Christ over your life as Lord and Saviour, you name is immediately written in the Lambs book of life, you eternity-future is ordained in heaven and sealed. As you surrender, your future steps are ordained by God on a promise – Commit your ways onto the Lord and He will direct your paths.
God the Father is totally consumes with your future.
