“People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, Steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit. Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing” (Isaiah 26:3, The Message).
That’s a good reminder for us all. In the Lord God we have a sure thing.
Jobs come and go. Relationships come and go. But God is a sure thing.
Those 401Ks and IRAs? Not so much.
When you’re feeling beat up and the week isn’t even over yet, remember that God is a sure thing.
When those people you counted on to be there suddenly aren’t, remember that God is a sure thing.
When you feel like the last of your hopes and dreams has turned to dust and ashes, remember that God is a sure thing.
When fear and anxiety won’t let you sleep at night and all you can thing about are possible worst case scenarios, remember that God is a sure thing.
When you have to say a last goodbye one more time to someone you love, remember that God is a sure thing.
Everything else will pass away, but not God.
Because you belong to God, you are secured forever, because God is a sure thing.
