Our future is only secure if we chose God to be the destiny maker of our lives.
Many people land on a hopeless future just by thinking that they are smarter than God, they like to design their destiny rather than allowing God to design it.
No one can think for a better future that is full of hope than God our creator. Only God knows the best for us simply because He alone is our creator, just like a designer of a cloth knows the best use of that cloth.
There is no hope in the future of the people who are proud and deny giving God access to their lives.
