When I was a teenager, there was a science fiction movie called “1984.” It was, of course, about how "Big Brother" would rule the world in 1984. Well, 1984 passed and Big Brother never showed up. There was another science fiction TV series called “Space 1999” about a colony living on the moon. Then there was another movie about space travel in the year 2001. It was appropriately called “2001 Space Odyssey” with a sequel titled, “2010.”

All of these movies predicted the future, and they were all wrong. However, there is a book that has predicted future events and has been perfectly accurate. It is, of course, the Bible.

The Bible tells of nations and kings, even using their names, before they were ever born. The Bible tells of the rebirth of the nation of Israel. All the facts of the future that were written in the past have happened, just as written.

With this in mind, we can easily ignore all of the disastrous forebodings of failure that the world predicts. While it may be true for some, it will not come near you. (Psalm 91)

So, what has God promised His children? What has He predicted for their future? The Bible says that the Holy Spirit shows the believer “things to come,” so we should know. Those who abide, meditate the Word, and listen… do know.

In His Word, we are told that Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law. (Gal. 3:13) The curse as described in Deuteronomy 28 is (1) death, (2) sickness & disease, and (3) poverty. Jesus came to bring us life, healing, and prosperity. It is our promise for the present and it is our destiny for the future.

So as you listen to all the earthly “experts” predict failure, remember this. As a Christian, you have been promised success in all areas of your life, both now and in the age to come.

As you make your new year's resolutions, remember this. God has already made one for you. He has resolved to make this coming year your most successful and wonderful year to date.

Remember, your best days are ahead of you.

“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us.” (Gal. 3:13)
