People desire to know their futures, most people want to know what lies ahead, and people not only want to know their futures they very particularly want to hear of the good that lie ahead. After all, when most people seek advice or want to know about their future they do so because they want to hear good things. Nobody wants to hear bad things, because all or most individuals on earth are hoping for the best for themselves and their loved ones.

Now, friend I know that if you had access to or an ability to peek into your future that most of you would make use of that ability, that is because most people want to know what life will be like for them five or ten years down the line. Well friend, a lot of what you do now in this day will directly impact your future five or ten years down the line. Think about it, where were you five, ten or twenty years ago? Many of you were still at school learning to read and write and right now you are in a very good place (you can READ!!), you are a direct beneficiary of the decisions you made then to go to school and get educated. The same applies to your future, if you invest your time and energy in good things now you will most likely be the main beneficiary five, ten years down the line. A lot of what you do now will impact your future, whether the things you do are good or bad, makes no difference. If you plant apple seeds you will get an apple tree with lots of apples on that tree, and if you plant grape seeds you will be harvesting grapes. I know most people do not want to hear that you being a cheat in your relationship now will result in some bad stuff happening to you in your future. Most people want to hear, “If it feels good then it is good, so go ahead and enjoy.” Reality is what you sow with your life today you will be the main reaper off tomorrow or in your future.

Friend, the main thing is the future is not as much a mystery as you think. If you can look at your past and see where you were back then and take a look at your present then you will know that much of what you had done in the past is a very direct cause why you are where you are today, whether you are happy or sad, good or bad, a lot of your own choices brought you here. If you could go back and change certain things, then what would those things be and why would you change your behaviour and choices back then? In most instances when people are honest with themselves they would say that they would go back and make better choices, others will say that they would change nothing. I will tend to agree with those who would choose to go back and make better choices for the simple reason that they actually show and prove through that choice today that they indeed grew in wisdom and are at least a little wiser now than they were five or ten years ago, it speaks of growth and improvement. And if you are one of those who acknowledge that they are wiser now than they were five or ten years back then your future looks bright.

As far as the righteous are concerned your future is a whole lot brighter according to God:

“The righteous will flourish like a palm tree..; they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green.” (Psalm 92:12-14 NIV)

Friend, there is a God-given guarantee that you will reach old age and with that guarantee comes another promise that you will flourish, meaning you will be prosperous and do well and be fruitful. That is the will of God and it really depends on you as an individual whether those things are your will as well.
