Dumarating ang magnanakaw para lamang magnakaw, pumatay, at manira. Naparito ako upang ang mga tupa ay magkaroon ng buhay, ng isang buhay na masagana at ganap.

Juan 10:10

Kung kailan nakakahinga-hinga na tayo sa COVID-19 pandemic at saka naman sumabog ang giyera sa pagitan ng Russia at Ukraine. At dahil maraming vlogs at articles na nagsabing this may lead to World War III, there are those who began to imagine a bleak future. Isa ka ba sa kanila? Nasasabi mo ba sa iyong sarili na tutal end of the world na, hindi na ako mag-aasawa, hindi na ako mangangarap, hindi na ako magpaplano? Pero teka lang, if this is how we think, it’s like surrendering our life to the enemy whose job is to steal our joy, crush our hope, and destroy our future.

Kailangang basahin natin ang buong John 10:10 at i-claim natin ang promise ni Lord na Siya ay naparito upang tayo ay bigyan ng masaganang buhay. “The thief comes only in order to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life ― life in all its fullness” (John 10:10,Good News Translation). Jesus came to earth, died on the cross, and rose again so we may have life and have it to the full. Only Jesus holds our future because He gave us our life, not an ordinary and defeated life, but a full life that is fruitful and victorious.

We may be disheartened and discouraged by the problems in the world today that may even get worse in the months and years to come. But this should not stop us from making plans for the future because God’s plan for us is to live our lives to the fullest. Ialay natin ang bawat plano natin sa Kanya.

LET’S PRAY

Dear Lord, madali akong na-distract sa mga problema at kaguluhan ng mundo kaya I gave up on my plans for the future. I want to dream again according to Your beautiful plan for my life. “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For your name’s sake, O LORD, preserve my life; in your righteousness bring me out of trouble” (Psalm 143:10–11, NIV). In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. Amen.

APPLICATION

Balikan mo ang iyong faith goals at the beginning of this year. Ask the Holy Spirit to breathe new life into your faith goals and to help you accomplish them. Kung wala ka pang naisulat, this is the time to write your faith goals for your personal growth, family, relationship, career, ministry, and so on, and commit them to the Lord in prayer.
