It’s only natural to feel curiosity about the future, and wonder what will happen. All our tomorrows are one big question mark. But as a Christ-follower, can too much of this questioning become unhealthy? Should Christians follow horoscopes? Can the zodiac signs really tell us anything?
Wondering about the future is natural. But it’s far more sensible to place our trust in the Lord, who has already written our horoscope! Just consider what God has to say about getting advice from the stars.
You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you. Behold, they are like stubble; the fire consumes them; they cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame. No coal for warming oneself is this, no fire to sit before! Such to you are those with whom you have labored, who have done business with you from your youth; they wander about, each in his own direction; there is no one to save you., (Isaiah 47:13-15).
God has already declared his children’s future.
So when anxious over it, lay the horoscopes aside, and turn to God’s Word instead. You may not learn exact details, but you will learn that your future is safe in his hands!
Even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save, (Isaiah 46:4).
Which would you rather trust in? Balls of gas in the sky, or the One who created them?
