The certainty of God vs. life’s uncertainties


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times Life is full of uncertainties, but for Christians those uncertainties are nothing compare to the certainties that God is real, is in control, and cares, watches over and guides His children. Unlike the non-Christian, the Christian can face the uncertainties of life without fear because the Christian knows that the uncertainties of this earthly life and earthly life itself are only for a season. The Christian knows that when their time on earth is over, their lives are only just beginning, lives with God in Heaven. That is the greatest certainty of all and because of that Christians take the long view of life and, more importantly, eternity, and place their trust in God, certain in the knowledge that their trust is not misplaced but is where it belongs. The ability to place their trust in the eternal and all-powerful God of all creation enables Christians to transcend life's uncertainties and live without fear of those uncertainties which, after all, are nothing compared to God and the eternity He has prepared for those who place their trust in Him.
