A WORD FOR THE JOURNEY
Recently, I received a letter from my insurance company. To their credit, in an unsure era, when people are more concerned about their insurance, they were trying to reassure me. But when I got to the end, I had more questions than answers. The use of phrases like "we may" and "at our discretion" certainly didn't sound like anything I could depend on!
In contrast, the Bible quotes God as saying "I will" numerous times.
Isaiah 41:8 (KJV):
I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
No uncertainty in those words. No matter what circumstances you are in, high places, valleys, a wilderness, or dry places, God is there to provide. Recognizing God's faithfulness to His promises, King Solomon says in his prayer of dedication for the temple: "Thou which hast kept with thy servant David my father which thou hast promised him: and spakest with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day." (2 Chronicles 6:15)
Centuries later, the apostle Paul said that all of God's promises are "yes" in Christ. (2 Cor. 1:20)
In a world of uncertainty, our trust is in a faithful God who will always keep His promises.
