Imagine playing chess with God? It would be hopeless for He not only knows every strategy but He knows every move I would make for He is the Alpha and Omega Who knows our end from our beginning! He is a timeless Being , the Ancient of days, so isnt it strange that we humans, who cant even guarantee the next 5 minutes of our life, dont trust the One Who controls everything EXCEPT the human will?
When we exercise our will to do His will, we step into our destiny, like custom made clothes - a perfect fit!
This world is in turmoil and they panic about the future which is unknown to them BUT not unknown by God whom they reject? They worry about the climate, finances and trade, wars and political struggles, disease and health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and crime and on and on it goes and they all scream....."why doesnt SOMEBODY do something about it?"
Well Somebody already has, and that Somebody is God Himself Who sent His only Son Jesus to die in our place for our rejection of Him for sin is the gap between our will and His perfect will!
Imagine if, instead of ignoring God, the WHOLE world would turn to Him in genuine repentance and ask for His help....???
Rom 5:8 "But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."........while we were still ignoring Him and trying to solve the worlds problems with our faulty human wisdom, God didnt ignore us but provided the solution in Jesus, The Creator of All things Who knows the end from the beginning!
As the old saying goes - "So many worry about what the future holds instead of trusting Him Who holds the future"! We worry about the unknown because we choose to allow God to remain unknown? The One Who loves us the most can be trusted the most!
