Q: Hindi po ako naniniwala sa hula pero minsan po ay na-dare ako ng aking friends na sumama sa kanila magpahula. The fortune-teller said something na mukhang tama naman sa nae-experience ko but she also predicted a bad future for me. I couldn’t get this out of my mind. I’m beginning to feel na kahit anong gawin ko, it will result to bad fortune. What will I do para mabago ang aking kapalaran?
A: Una sa lahat, let me tell you an established fact, only God holds our destiny in His hands, hindi tao at lalong hindi hula ng tao. The Bible says, “I am God, and there is none like me. Only I can tell you the future before it even happens.” (Isaiah 46:9-10)
Fortune-tellers may use psychological techniques to manipulate you but the spirit behind fortune-telling does not come from God but from the powers of darkness. Bakit ka nababalot sa takot? Kasi nga hindi galing sa Diyos ang narinig mo. Ninakaw ng kaaway ang peace of mind mo. Jesus said, “The thief comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy. I came that you may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) So let me recommend that you do the following:
- Stop going to fortune-tellers, mediums and spirits.
- Tanggapin mo ang iyong pagkakamali and ask God to forgive you.
- Isuko mo ang life mo kay Jesus dahil Siya lang ang tanging nakakaalam, at may hawak ng kinabukasan mo. He can give you a powerful future.
- Read the Bible. Ito ang real book about your future.
The Bible says, “Someone may say to you, “Let’s ask the mediums and those who consult the spirits of the dead. With their whisperings and mutterings, they will tell us what to do.” But shouldn’t people ask God for guidance? Should the living seek guidance from the dead? Look to God’s instructions and teachings! People who contradict his word are completely in the dark.” (Isaiah 8:19-20)
