Food for Thought: What Would You Do Differently If God Showed You Your Future?

I used to always wonder that if God were to offer a sneak peek into my life five or ten years from now, what would I do with that information?

If I could see the future, would my life be better—or would I mess it up?

But this is what makes God, God, right?

The fact is that we are unable to know what will happen in the next minute, but He knows until the end of time.

After something happens in my life or around me, I sit down and wonder to myself, God definitely knew that would happen, right? (Do you also do this?)

Most especially, when something bad happens—like an unexpected death—I wonder, Could God have prevented that from happening?

Did He see me make that mistake? Could He have prevented it?

If God were to show you what’s set to happen 5 years from now (such as where you’re meant to be or what you’re meant to do)...

  • What would you do?

  • Would you pray differently?

  • Would you plan differently?

  • Would you still live your life the way you are doing so right now?

  • Would you make the same decisions you are making?

  • If God were to show you what you were meant to do and it’s not what you are doing right now, would you be happy? Would you jump at the chance for change?

  • What would you do if God were to show you the future?

Think about it.
