CERTAINTIES and UNCERTAINTIES OF LIFE
Have talk to someone and he presented a lot of uncertainties and worries in his life. Three particularly important things that we talk. The uncertainties of riches, it is true that no one can sustain the riches forever, in matter of time the riches of a person can just fly like a wind. The bible has reminded us to … 4-5 Do not weary yourself trying to get rich. Why wastes your time? For riches can disappear as though they had the wings of a bird! Proverbs 23:4-5 (TLB).
Another uncertain thing on this world is the future. If look back 5 years ago we will not think we will face this kind of trouble we now face in Hong Kong. Five years ago, we just enjoy our life, spend here and there. Never thinking of saving up. Because we never thought we will have this trouble this time. This proven to us future is uncertain. So be wise how you live today, for what you do today will determine your future. The bible says: Proverbs 27:1 (NIV) “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring”. Another thing is uncertain is LIFE. No one knows when we are going to live. Money and good health do not guarantee long life. It gives us hope to life long, but no one can guarantee that. The bible reminded us that we are just like a mist, we here today and gone tomorrow. (James 4:14). That is why we need not to live with boasting, or pride or egoistic attitude. OR else you will be lonely along the way if you live that way.
We have many uncertainties in life but thank God there so thousands of Certainties we can claim, sure things that we can look up too. Specially in this time of uncertainties.
THE PROMISES OF GOD and HIS WORDS Every word and promises of God is sure to happen. You can hold on to it. Because God is not man that He should lie. (Numbers 23:19)
56 “Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. 1Kings 8:56.
GOD INSEPARABLE LOVE
I love how Paul presented this word to us, is so complete and noticeably clear. NO matter what happens God will love you forever. HALLELUJAH! Romans 8:38-39 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Our God never change, He the same yesterday today and forever more (Heb 13:8). Because He unchangeable, and his love does not keep the records of wrong, you might sin against Him. But His Love for you will never change. That means anytime a person come to him in repentance you will be sure that you will be forgiven (1John 1:9) This is our eternal hope. As Apostle Paul says, Hope does not disappoint us (Romans 5:5). Because the anchor of that hope is Jesus. (Heb 6:19).
I encourage my beloved brethren, this time of many uncertainties, Look up to the Lord Jesus, to his Promises, In His Love and in His Hope. You will find strength new life in Him.
God be with you always. Keep praying and trusting Jesus no matter life may bring.
