TEENS RHAPSODY OF REALITIES FOR 23RD APRIL 2022 YOU DON’T NEED A CRYSTAL BALL (You’ve Got A Secure Destiny In God)
TOPIC: YOU DON’T NEED A CRYSTAL BALL (You’ve Got A Secure Destiny In God)
TEXT: Proverbs 4:18
MEMORY VERSE: “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”
You’d be surprised at how many people spend so much money on fortune-tellers to tell them about the future or what tomorrow will bring. If they’re told, “It will be a sad day for you tomorrow” or “A distant friend will call you this week” or “You will find true love this month,” they blindly accept. This shows that some people are willing to pay to be lied to and deceived, instead of seeking answers from God’s Word.
You don’t need a fortune-teller to tell you how your tomorrow will be. Look into the Word, and you’ll see that your path in life is bright! All you need in life is to discover God and know Him intimately. When you delight yourself in the Lord, you’ll have no confidence in fortune tellers, tarot cards, or horoscopes. Your confidence will be in what the Word says about you and not someone’s dream.
Those who run to soothsayers are insecure; you don’t need somebody’s verdict to determine whether you will be rich or poor, happy or sad, a success or a failure, healthy or sick. You’re built on the solid rock which is Christ, and you’re rooted and grounded in Him. God has planned your life, and you don’t live by luck or coincidence.
The Bible declares in Proverbs 1:33 CEV, “…if you listen to me, you will be safe and secure without fear of disaster.” So, there’s no
need to fret about your future – just listen to Him and build your life on His Word!
Ecclesiastes 9:11; Isaiah 45:11; Jeremiah 29:11
Heavenly Father, I thank you for my future is bright and secure in you. I put no confidence in man but look to your Word as my Light in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
