Are you thinking about the future? Maybe you’re just thinking about January first when the New Year begins and looking back over this passing year. Sometimes it is good to look back, and take account of what the Lord has done for us, and our loved ones. Looking ahead can help motivate us to seek better choices than the year before, and make stronger commitments in our lives, to Jesus Christ and our relationship with him, to our husband , or wife, our children, family and friends. Life it’s self offers no guarantees of what the future will bring, but the promises of God are a Commitment to us, through his Son Jesus Christ, and ever lasting love that never fails us, nor leaves us, a hope for the future of heaven and not hell. My journey to find God started when I was a child, now I am old and I have found him through Jesus and still seek him, I know whom I have believed; “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”(Romans 8:38,39) How about your commitment ? “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” ( John 4:35). “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” (Proverbs 4:18).” For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” (Romans 11:29). In other words God is not an Indian giver. He doesn’t give us things or promises , and later decides to take them back! He is a man of his Word. You can stand on his promises, and count on them though all hell breaks loose on you! “Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: which hope we have as an anchor of the soul,” (Hebrews 6:17-19a). You can take his promises to the bank and count on them. He will never fail you. His promises are like a strong Anchor, no matter what storms of life you go through! “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5). “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20). His promises are not half hearted, or wishy washy, or luke warm! This is the way Jesus wants us to be toward him and others. “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” (Psalms 119:89).“ Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (James 1:17). “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35). So beloved, stand on his promises, believe them, and quote the terms of the contract to the contract maker! His promises are the only real thing that you’ve got that will last forever, including the souls of those you have brought to him!
