There are so many ways people try to find security: with a boyfriend/girlfriend, in the perfect house, a better job, a big bank account, fame… Those kinds of pursuits (and accomplishments) can bring a temporary satisfaction, but the truth is at any time, they can be yanked away. The relationship falls apart, the house burns down, the company closes, the bank fails, the followers turn their attention to someone else… I’m certainly not trying to be a “negative Nellie,” but the fact is there is nothing of this life that lasts forever. The only thing that will last into eternity is our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. In His Word He promises “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” He won’t stop loving you. He cannot be destroyed. When you accept Him, you are His forever, and He is yours. HE IS WITH YOU. There’s your hope in an often uncertain world!
