Our Lent: Day 6

Our Lent Partners: Peter Wallace: "I invite you to read Psalm 48.
'That you may tell the next generation that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will be our guide forever.' (Psalm 48:13b,14)

That last part of that verse literally says that God will be our guide “to the end,” or “beyond death.”

Who knows what tomorrow may bring? Who knows how you will die, or when? Will it be sudden, at a younger age than you expected? Will your life be extended until you’re well up in years? Will death be painful? Could it have been avoided? How will it all end?

These are morbid questions, but most everyone asks them at one time or another.

There’s one more question: What happens after the end? That’s where the joy and the mystery are.

Today, think about some of these serious questions. As you do, remember that God is your guide right now. And tomorrow. And at the point of death. And beyond, forever and ever.

What’s more, God knows what’s best for you. God knows the days of your life and has known them from your mother’s womb. God knows everything about you. And God loves you enough to be your guide for every step you have left to you."
