Simple Thoughts On Promises- 188

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail. (Isaiah 51:6)

In this promise, God Almighty affirms that salvation from him will last forever. What he has said, he will bring to pass because of his unfailing righteousness.

Terrible times are upon the world. Famines, plagues, wars and natural calamities are on the rise. There is chaos all over the world. Each moment there are more than 50 wars raging in the world. The economic slump in many countries is leading to joblessness, homelessness and hopelessness. Yet the believer in Jesus Christ has hope for now and for the future. He/She knows that Jesus will never forsake him/her, come what may.

The Apostle Paul asks,
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? (Romans 8:35)
And then he answers the question himself:
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)

The Apostle Paul was convinced about the unfailing love of God through Jesus Christ, so he wrote the following to the Roman believers:
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38,39)

Your salvation is a sure thing if you have believed in the sin atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross and are living in obedience to his Word. Nothing will be able to separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. May that thought give peace and hope to every troubled soul this day. God bless.
