Is there anything that is for sure? Yes, as the young girl sings, “The sun will come out tomorrow.” Is there anything we can count on? Jobs are not forever. Friends come and go. Commitments and promises can fall by the wayside. In an age of uncertainty, what is really sure?
The Savior says: “I will be with you, even to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:19.) We are challenged not to allow the love of money to take over our lives; Jesus will always be with us, (Heb. 13:5.) Though He doesn’t promises us vibrant health, a plush bank account, or a life without trials, He does promise to be with us. All those who have accepted Him as Savior are assured of His presence, providence, and guidance. He sees all that has happened, is happening, and all that will happen. Not seeing the big picture, we can walk hand-in-hand with the one who does. We have the blessed assurance of His love and that He will never leave us. To have the constant friendship of the maker of the universe, to be held in His hand…that is blessed assurance indeed!
