Our God of Certainty

Our God of Certainty

“The foundation on which you build your life is the only thing that will stand when the storms of life ultimately come, and they will come. It’s not a question of if, but when…” - Ravi Zacharias

On what or in whom have you built your life’s foundation? I hope your answer is, “in Christ Jesus my Lord.”

You and I serve a Living God! We serve a God who speaks and reveals Himself to us -- He speaks to us in our lowest and highest moments, and He’s speaking to us in the midst of this global health crisis.

God was with Joseph in the depths of the pit (Genesis 37:23-24); He was present with Daniel in the lions’ den (Daniel 6:16-23); and God showed up in the blazing fire with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (Daniel 3:12-30). And God is certainly present today as we experience this new normal.

What, then, do we have to say? God is speaking, so let’s use this opportunity to go before the throne room of God and listen to what He’s saying. Let’s replace fear with faith -- the one power against which fear cannot stand. News coverage has been filled with uncertainty these past few weeks and months, but one thing is certain: our God is a God of certainty, and He never ceases to be God. These times of earthly uncertainty did not catch Him by surprise; therefore, our hope in Him should not waver. 

We are all undoubtedly living in uncertain times; but, friend, I want to say again that we serve a God of certainty. No individual, business or government can tell you what to expect a few weeks or months from now -- only God can. And He says that victory has already been won, no matter the circumstances we face. Be reminded of Jesus’ words in John 16:33 (MSG): “I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”

I believe these comforting words speak to these times in which we live. Spend some time praying through this passage – with the assurance that as a child of God, you are victorious, and you are more than a conqueror (Romans 8:31-39).

The One who saves us remains connected to us and is deeply interested in us. Whatever life brings, we can be assured that the One who rescued us from our greatest foe, the devil (Hebrews 2:14), stands ready to help us in our times of greatest need. Remain strongly connected to Him; and remember, He’s a God of certainty!
