Ravi Zacharias talks about how we fear for the future. As people in a time where fears and struggles seem to be commonplace, we attempt to find a place of rest in order to cope with whatever harsh reality we might face. Some people find comfort in the past; they let their mind wander from the present to think of halcyon times, and they wonder where it is that those times went. Others may find themselves looking forward to something else; trying to blot out the darkly colored moments they face at that time, and trying to paint their own bright future for themselves in their conscience. In this article, Ravi says, “But no matter our reason, when the future alone is our end and life is preoccupied with what once was or what might be, it is something less than living.” This strikes me as something that is just so true and something that many people need to hear. If we’re busy thinking about how good times were or how good life is going to be, we’ll just miss out on the present and what it has to offer. And of course, since Ravi brought up the topic of fears, he gives us a solution for it. He says that God’s perfect love and his promise of eternal life to us is the key to casting out this exhaustion that we experience from the daily toils of life. I get caught up in the daily flow of life, whether if I’m just letting life take its course or if I’m struggling just to see the end of the day. Seeing this article was a wake-up call, letting me know that this daily life and all of the pain that comes with it is only temporary. God has a spot in Heaven that he’s reserving just for us.
