So much of life is uncertain.
Days go by and we are left with unanswered questions or unfulfilled longings.
Despite our best attempts to plan and schedule, we cannot predict what tomorrow will bring…if tomorrow even comes.
This is not a new struggle. Throughout all of human history, man has attempted to know things – to really know them – with absolute certainty.
Although there is much uncertainty, there are some things we can know for sure. Hosea points out one of these things:
As surely as the sun rises, He will appear; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth (Hosea 6:3).
In my entire life, I’ve never witnessed a single day in which the sun failed to rise. I’m thankful that, like Hosea, I can know for sure that the Lord will return.
And it will certainly be a glorious return.
