Uncertainties, Promises, and Fears

FaithPromises.   It seems people almost always promise more than they can deliver.   When the promises can’t be kept, it leases to disappointment especially when a child is involved.  Adults get disappointed as well.    It’s just not as hard on a child as it is an adult.  But, still it hurts.

Last week, the United Kingdom voted on a referendum whether they should leave the European Union.  While analysts and political pundits were saying that the U.K. would vote to stay.   However, when people woke up on Friday morning, the world it seemed was thrown into chaos because the pundits and experts got it all wrong which sent the stock market down.   Uncertainty set in.

You would have thought the world was coming to an end because of the uncertainty.

People don’t like uncertainty.  People get comfortable doing one thing one way all the time so that at some point it become natural.  When something different pops up, they don’t know how to handle it.

To begin with, you have to have trust and more importantly faith that things will work out.   Otherwise, fear sets in and takes over when uncertainties no longer seem certain.

Without God, faith and trust, there is no hope and people began to panic.   It’s important to know that it’s going to be okay.  No matter what happens, you come out on the other side stronger and be equipped to handle the next crisis.  Sure I know that if you’re like me, you don’t like the uncertainties that come with a crisis.  But, you have to remember that it’s going to be okay and you have to have faith the size of a mustard seed.

Perhaps, we’ve forgotten what a mustard seed looks like.  If so, go to the local supermarket and pick up the mustard seeds.  It’s tiny.  If you plant the seed, it will grow into an enormous tree.

So trust God, He’s seen the certainties.  With him, there are no uncertainties.
