Today's JAR- Fortune Telling is Against God's Will

Today's JAR  Just a Reminder

I was reading a popular blog on Greek traditions and my heart stopped when I read, HOW TO READ A COFFEE CUP.    She wrote, "Remember that this is superstition, a game, something to do for fun!"

Any time we look away from God to see our future we look to the demons.  I say this because when we look away, we no longer trust God's will to lead us, no longer learn from the journey, and no long depend on Him to give us what we need.   And any seed that is planted during these "games" can harm us even more.  They grow the weeds of doubt and fear, or false confidence.  

Fortune telling is more of a demonic practice than a game.  I feel the same way about horoscopes.  Or as I say, horror-scopes. 

If you want to know what your future holds, pray.  Establish your life towards a godly direction.  Nurture your relationship with God.  Keep your compass set on Christ and the Church's teachings.  I can assure you your future will hold challenges, joys, peace, falls and repentance.   Little by little, day by day, you will come to find that living each day will be enough for you to worry about and the future will be better left in God's hands.  Like manna in the desert, you will have every thing you need for today. 

Matthew 6:25-34  New King James Version (NKJV)

Do Not Worry

 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
