Q:

Do you think some people are psychic and have the ability to tell the future? I'm facing some difficult decisions, and I've heard about this woman who can tell people what they should do through some special cards she uses.


A:

I sincerely hope you won’t seek advice from anyone who claims to be able to foretell the future. At best, such claims are fraudulent and you will only be wasting your money; at worst, you could find yourself entangled with occult spiritual powers that will deceive and harm you.

This is why the Bible repeatedly warns us against any type of occult practice. The ancient world was filled with all kinds of superstitions and occult practices, but God’s people were warned not to let themselves be influenced by them. The Bible says, “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist, or who consults the dead” (Deuteronomy 18:10-11).

Instead, I urge you to turn to God and seek His will for your future. God loves you; He loves you so much that He sent His only Son into the world to give His life for your salvation. Why not trust your life into His hands? By a simple prayer of faith ask Christ to forgive your past and come into your life today.

Then commit your future into His hands. I can’t promise all your problems will suddenly go away—but I do know this: It’s far better to face the future with God than without Him. Don’t follow the wrong path in life, but follow Christ instead. You’ll never regret it.
