THIS is Eternal Life!
Disappointment plagues many people and leads to frustration, anger and even despair! It is easy to become disillusioned and skeptical of everyone and everything. Expectations often lead to being let down and at times we have to confess that we disappoint others … and even ourselves. Such is the common experience of living in a world where every person is deeply affected by sin, by a “self” that wants to think only of its own good, its own welfare, its own happiness. But there is something worse!! What happens when you think that GOD has let you down when it feels that He has not “lived up to His promises”? At times when the temptation comes to doubt, to question, to wonder, you need to be prepared to stand firm in your faith in God because you KNOW Him. Without true knowledge of the one and only true God, your faith will waver because it is not grounded in the truth about God that He Himself reveals in His Word and in His dealings with His people. God does not work one way sometimes and another way at a different time. The way He has worked in the past is the way He works in the present and the way He will work in the future. You can count on it! You can count on HIM!! The God of Israel remembers His covenant … FOREVER!!!
