Yesterday’s testimonies before we started our GT lesson were about our perception in the near future. We were asked to share what we envision in the future and how can we thank God for that. I was struck. How can you thank God for the things you cannot see yet? How can you honor Him if the things you pray for are not yet in your hands? I believe it is easy to thank God for what He has accomplished. It is easy to thank the Lord for His deliverance rather than His promises.
The Bible tells us thousands of promises from the Lord but we still doubt His faithfulness. We always doubt because of the uncertainty of what we expect to happen. I may be, oftentimes, anxious. So, when the question was asked I didn’t know what to answer. Who knows about tomorrow? God knows.
So if there is one thing to thank God for, it is the truth that He already accomplished the things in the future. We may not see it yet because God is teaching us to walk by faith and not by sight. We must be reminded that God is present yesterday, today and tomorrow. God is with us and He is in us.
