Trusting Our Future to God
welcome to today's encouragement from our daily bread reading titled trusting our future to God was written by Wynn Collier
 in 2010 Laszlo has made the first purchase with Bitcoin digital currency then worth a fraction of a penny each paying ten thousand B coins for two pizzas worth $25 in 2021 at its highest value during the year those Bitcoins would have been worth well more than 500 million dollars back before the value skyrocketed he kept paying for pizzas with coins spending 100,000 Bitcoins total if he'd kept those Bitcoins their value would have made him a billionaire 68 times over and placed him on the Forbes richest people in the world list if only he'd known what was coming of course he has couldn't possibly have known none of us could have despite our attempts to comprehend and control the future Ecclesiastes 10 Rings true no one knows what is coming
 some of us delude ourselves into thinking we know more than we do or worse that we possess some special insight about another person's life for future but as Ecclesiastes pointedly asked who can tell someone else what will happen after them no one scripture contrast a wise and a foolish person and one of the many distinctions between the two is humility about the future a wise person recognizes that only God truly knows what's Over the Horizon as they make decisions but foolish people presume knowledge that isn't theirs may we have wisdom trusting our future to the only one who actually knows it
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from Ecclesiastes chapter 10 verses 12 through 14
 words from the mouth of the wise are gracious but fools are consumed by their own lips at the beginning their words are Folly at the end they are wicked Madness and fools multiply words no one knows what is coming who can tell someone else what will happen after them
let's pray dear God we take comfort in knowing that you hold the future in your hand help us to relinquish control to you and trust you with hours today in Jesus name we pray amen
