In today’s world it is easy to become fearful of what may happen in the future. There are many uncertainties and so much information and dis-information, it is oftentimes difficult to know who or what to trust or where to turn for truth. That can be scary! 
However, God and His Word always remain constant. God always has been, and always will be on the throne. His truth will always prevail. When we seek the Lord, He will give us what we need each day. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ”For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” The Lord has a plan for our future and it is good!
By claiming this great truth, our fear should be replaced with a sense of calm confidence. Knowing there is a plan in place will do that for you.
The same is true concerning our financial household. It can be scary to think of our financial future if we don’t have a plan in place to guide us. Doubt and fear of not knowing what the future will look like can erode our joy for today. But, when we have a good estate plan and financial plan in place, we do not need to live in fear of the future. Our preparation and planning will produce a sense of calm confidence. 
In all circumstances, we can face the future knowing the Lord plans to prosper us and give us hope. There’s nothing to be scared of when we hold on tight to that great promise!
