''Yes, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: 'Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. They are prophesying lies to you in My name. I have not sent them,'' declares the LORD.''' Jeremiah 29:8-9 (NIV)
DON'T LET FEARS ABOUT THE FUTURE KEEP YOU FROM LIVING IN THE PRESENT.
''This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 'Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease.''' Jeremiah 29:4-6 (NIV)
''Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?'' Matthew 6:27 (NIV)
''So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time.'' Matthew 6:34 (LB)
STOP STRUGGLING TO CONTROL THE FUTURE AND SURRENDER TO CHRIST'S CARE AND CONTROL.
''Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.'' Jeremiah 29:12,13 (NIV)

God controls the big picture.
''I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all My purpose,' calling a bird of prey from the east, the man of My counsel from a far country. I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed, and I will do it.'' Isaiah 46:9 (ESV)
