I asked a troubled and rebellious young man, “Do you believe in prophets?” He replied, “Yes.” I told him, “Well, I’m not one, but I can tell you your future right now because I can see the road you’re traveling on, and it’s the road that leads to jail and prison.” I wasn’t trying to scare the boy, nor was I trying to intimidate him. I was just being completely honest with him based on the things I could see going on in his life at the moment. He told me he would be okay and wouldn’t do anything stupid enough to wind up in prison. 

We parted ways and I continued to pray for him. I got a voice message from him just two days later, saying, “I got busted last night and I’m in a detention center.” Talk about prophesy fulfilled! But, as I mentioned, I’m not a prophet… however, I can tell what the future holds for a person just by looking at the road they’re traveling on. It’s not rocket science. 

Going straight through the middle of my hometown there’s a highway called Highway 31. If I saw you driving south on Highway 31 I could make some fairly accurate assumptions about where you were headed. You might be headed to Falkville, or a little further south to Cullman or perhaps even a little further south to Birmingham. That’s where that highway takes the motorists on it. So, here’s how I can “prophesy” your future:

1.) I see the road you’re traveling on, and

2.) I see the direction in which you’re heading.

The rest is elementary!

With this in mind ask yourself this question: “What road am I on right now, and where is it headed? What would be the final destination if I continued on this road without making a u-turn?” No, you don’t have to be a prophet to be able to tell your future. Just take a look at the road that you’ve been traveling on… and see where it is headed.

Proverbs 14:12 (International Standard Version)
There is a pathway that seems right to a man, but in the end it’s a road to death.
