Putting On Your Shades
In 1986, there was a song recorded by a musical group called Timbuk3 titled The Future’s so Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades. Do you live with a sense that great things are on the horizon for you? Do you keep your shades close by? God wants that for you, and He wants that for me, and as He says so in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans that I have for you … plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope.” I am convinced that we need to believe God and, by faith, put on our shades. You see, God has promised a bright future, a glorious future, for those who love Him and keep their eyes on Jesus. No matter what you're facing today, will you simply believe God and join me in putting on the shades? Now that’s real hope.
