Are You Sure?
How easy it is to doubt. As we live this earthly life we sometimes find ourselves in the middle of a season of worry. Just this morning, the radio broadcaster was saying that there is a Facebook post proclaiming Wolf Creek Dam could fail due to high water from many recent rains. The Army Corp of Engineers differs in their opinion, but still the people who live down river from the dam must be concerned about the situation. How sure are they of their safety?
Our Lord promises that no matter the situation he will never leave us nor forsake us, (Deut. 31:6), "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord goes with you: he will never leave you or forsake you." What does never mean? Does it mean that He is with us and won't forsake us as long as we are doing His will? Are you sure?
In John 10:27-29 we read the words of God Himself. "My sheep hear my voice: I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish: no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all: no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and the Father are one." Never fear Christian! Walk with God on the earth, then you will walk with Him in eternity.
