Age of Uncertainty...

So Much Uncertainty...
War and Terrorism.
Health Care.
Climate Change.
But Even More Certainty...
God is Eternal.
The circumstances of this world come and go, but God has been, and will be, "from everlasting to everlasting you are God". (Psalm 90:2)
God is Unchanging.
We do not know whether tomorrow will be like today or not. But we do know that God "is the same yesterday, today, and forever". (Hebrews 13:8)
God is Love.
We do not need to know what is in God's mind regarding the future. We only need to know that all His choices reflect the fact that He is love. (1 John 4:8, 16)
God is Perfect.
There is much human imperfection in this world that results in uncertainty. But God is perfect and can be trusted implicitly. (Matthew 5:48)
God is Righteous.
Peoples' words and actions are often motivated by unrighteous motives. But God is righteous, meaning He always does the right thing. (Psalm 145:17)
God is All-Powerful.
Uncertainty doesn't exist because of God being weak. Since He has unlimited power, His purposes are the issue, not His power. (Psalm 33:6-9)
God is All-Knowing.
The root of uncertainty is fear of the future. But God knows it all. We don't need to know the future as long as we know He does. (Hebrews 4:13)
We are not at the mercy at of an uncertain world. Instead, by the certain mercies of our loving God, you can live a life of security-surrounded and protected by the peace of God in Christ. (Philippians 4:6-7)
