We can very easily get caught up in imagining what will happen in our future. We rehearse conversations before they happen, usually imagining worst case scenarios. We strategize and scheme and plot how to "control" to get the outcomes we want. Our imaginations can cook up some very bizarre fictions about what others are thinking about us or what they could possibly do to us. But God tells us all these imaginings are foolishness. The future hasn't happened yet, so our projections aren't real. When you find yourself caught up in these kinds of imaginations, pull in your mental "reins" and focus instead on what is true now. Repeat to yourself whatever is true in your present to help keep your mind on the truth. When we live in what is true now, it grounds us in reality. He is with us in the here-and-now, so living in our present truth is an important part of walking with Jesus.
