Recently I’ve been thinking about the saying attributed to Benjamin Franklin, “Nothing is certain but death and taxes.” I’ve been thinking about how untrue that statement is. There are so many more things that are certain, just as certain as death and even more certain than taxes.
So, today, on the eve of the memorial service for a precious saint, I am pondering what I am sure of. I pray it will bless your soul, as it has blessed mine.
I am certain of God’s eternal existence. (Romans 1:19-20)
I am certain of the truth of God’s Word. (Luke 1:1-4)
I am certain that God formed me in my mother’s womb, and numbered my days before even one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:13-16)
I am certain that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. (John 20:31)
I am certain that God will never forget me. (Isaiah 49:15-16)
I am certain of God’s unending love. (Romans 5:8)
I am certain of God’s boundless mercy and grace. (Hebrews 4:16)
I am certain of God’s abundant forgiveness. (1 John 1:9)
I am certain of God’s Almighty power. (Revelation 1:8)
I am certain of God’s great and daily faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
I am certain of the coming hope of heaven. (John 14:1-4)
I’d love to hear what you are certain of. Please leave me a comment. Let us encourage one another with the Word of Truth, Hope and Certainty. Let us choose to doubt our doubts, and doggedly believe our beliefs.
