Five Things We Know For Sure

By Dr. Jed N. Snyder

There seems to be relatively little in life that we can really count upon these days.  Some can’t even count on their family.  Locks on doors, security systems and patrolling officers reveal more clearly than ever how insecure we believe we are.

So it is truly beneficial to know that some things really are sure.  In relationship to His children we can know these five things for sure.

Firstly, God, the Father is revealed in His Son, Jesus Christ.   Jesus said this as recorded in Matthew 11:27,  “’No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.'”

Secondly we know He provides for our needs. “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ {32}For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. {33}But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:31-33

He also sees our secret desires. “Your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:4

Additionally, He gives us good gifts.  “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:11

Finally, in this little discussion, we are thrilled that He cares for the young.  “‘See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.'” Matthew 18:10 Children are precious to God, the Father.

Hopefully you know God as your own personal Heavenly Father and are resting securely in these five sure things.

Happy being able to count on God.
