I Don't Know

Today's Devotion: September 2

Divine Foresight

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11



Recommended Reading

Isaiah 46:9-10



If you have 20/20 vision, you can see what a normal person sees on a chart when standing 20 feet away. If you have 20/40 vision, it means that you, while standing 20 feet from the chart, can see what a normal person can see from 40 feet away—meaning your eyesight is imperfect. The expression “hindsight is 20/20” means that everyone sees the past clearly. What seems fuzzy before it happens is always clear after the fact.

We humans might have 20/20 hindsight, but God also has 20/20 foresight. That is, His view of the future is just as clear as His (and our) view of the past. We try our best to see the future clearly—we pray, do our research, seek counsel, and prepare. But only God knows the future. That is the heart of biblical prophecy. God knows and declares, through His prophets, “the end from the beginning ... things that are not yet done” (Isaiah 46:10). God’s heart is to give His people “a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).

You know your past today, and God knows your future. If you trust Him with what has already happened, trust Him as well with things to come.

Trust the past to the mercy of God, the present to His love, and the future to His providence.



Ezekiel 28 – 30

From This Point Forward

From This Point Forward
When Edith Galt, a preacher's daughter from Wytheville, Virginia, was living in Washington, D.C., her husband died and she took over his jewelry store. Edith had little formal education. She wasn't interested in politics and didn't even know the names of the presidential candidates in election years. But she was a savvy business woman who made enough money to retire early, travel widely, and enjoy her leisure.
