Eternal Confidence

I want to thank all of you who have supported me and this site for the past several months. It has been a pleasure sharing with you the love of God and this life He gives us.

I must delay providing devotions for the foreseeable future for lack of resources to continue this mission. I almost certainly will be back with you but for now, it’s time to take a pause beginning April 3.

“This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God – who does not lie – promised them before the world began” (Titus 1:2)

Keeping a secret is not always easy. It’s even harder to keep a secret secret when you tell it to another person.

The old saying goes, “If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”

But while no secret is safe with any mortal, God will never let it slip.

God does not lie – He has never lied. He does not deal in gossip, nor does He falsely accuse. He does not trade secrets for secrets, because He already knows all there is to know.

You can trust that whatever you tell God will stay between you and God. You can tell Him all of the horrible things that you would never tell another soul, and know that it will go no further.

In fact, you have to. That’s the point of confession.

But here’s the beauty of confessing those awful things:

“I will forgive their iniquity and remember their sin no more.” (Jer. 31:34)

Fear not that your secrets will get out.

Fear not that the Lord will lie to you – about anything.

Instead, have confidence that you have eternal life, given to you by the Creator of life.

After all, God said it, and that settles it, whether anyone else chooses to believe it or not.
