May 3rd – Jeremiah 29:11
Throughout the Bible God explicitly forbids seeking physics, mediums, astrologists, and fortune tellers of all sorts. (Duet. 18:10-12, Lev. 19:31, 20:6, 2 Kings 23:24) But today the business of witchcraft is a multi billion dollar one. Because everyone has questions needing answers and a future needing to be told. Even Christians fall prey to the sin of trusting others who tell you what you want to hear, instead of trusting God. The Israelites learned the hard way all that glitters isn’t gold. They desperately wanted to believe the false prophets and mediums in Babylon. Those who promised the people would soon be back in their own land. But God was very clear. Only He controls the future. And only He can can guarantee one of hope, goodness, love, and prosperity. How could there be a more wonderful future! And because of God’s unending grace and mercy, to get it all we need do is confess Jesus as Lord and receive His gift of pardon.
