Hope for the future is available, but sometimes it seems hard to come by. It is often said that our whole life is ahead of us. However, many people go through difficult times in their lives and wonder what they can look forward to.
No matter where you are, hope for the future is there for you to cling to.
10 inspiring reasons to believe that your future is bright:
1. Mistakes in life do not have the last word
If you make a mistake, you can start over. Mistakes are part of the growth process and learning curve in life. When we start putting our mistakes in the past, our future starts to look bright.
2. You are a work in progress
God has promised to continue working in you and with you. Growth and development take time and we should expect continued personal growth in the future.
3. Never too young or old
You are never too young or too old to fill your days with meaning and purpose. Think about Moses: he was 80 years old when God called him to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt!
4. Every day is a new day
Every day is new and fresh. You can make the most of each. If we failed today, we can look forward to a new day tomorrow. Thank God that His grace and mercy are new every day. (Lamentations 3:21-23)
5. You are never alone
God said He will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5) People can leave us, but God will not. The future is bright knowing that God is in it.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” — Romans 15:13
6. God loves you
God loves you unconditionally! God loves you just the way you are. But as the saying goes, He loves you too much to leave you the way you are.
7. You have a purpose in life
God created you with a purpose and you can discover it. We have all been given unique gifts and talents that help us fulfill our purpose. Discovering our purpose and living in it makes the future bright not only for us, but also for those around us.
8. God will supply all your needs
God will provide for your needs as you seek and obey his Word. (Philippians 4:19) “The Lord is my portion, says my soul, therefore I will trust in him.” – Lamentations 3:24
9. Fairies in the sky
God has created a wonderful place in heaven for His children. We have the hope that after life on earth we will pass to eternal life in heaven. “There are many apartments in my Father’s house… I am going to prepare a place for you.” – John 14:2
10. Instruction from the Most High God
If we believe, we rely on God and if we acknowledge Him, He will rule our life. The God who created the universe is available to help us guide our lives. “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” – Proverbs 3:6
Hope for the future may have faded for you. You may feel like you are in prison and have no future. But no matter where you are, God has promised to bless you with a future filled with hope and success, not suffering. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Do yourself a favor: Have hope and believe that your future is bright. May the truth of God’s love set you free. God is a miracle-working God. He does not punish us all our lives for our mistakes. He wants us to look forward, not back. Put your hope and trust in God and let him be an active part of your life.
May your hope be strong, your future bright, and your life full of growing prosperity!
