Billy Graham

My Answer/ Billy Graham

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: It's been a hard year for me, and I'd give almost anything to know what the new year has in store for me. How can I find out? A woman in our town claims to be able to tell your future, and I 'm almost willing to give her a try. —M.K.

Dear M.K.: I sincerely hope you won't go down this path. At best you'd simply be wasting your money — and at worst you could find yourself getting entangled with occult spiritual forces that are enemies of your soul. The Bible warns us to avoid occult practices, and calls them "detestable to the Lord" (Deuteronomy 18:12).

Only God knows the future; no matter how hard we try, even our best efforts will only be guesses. But this ought to encourage you — because if God knows the future, then you can trust your future into His hands! Wouldn't it be better to face the future with Him than without Him? God loves you, and you can trust His promise to be with you and guide you.
