To Be Certain in Times of Life’s Uncertainties

 

Have you heard of somebody who claims that he or she never experienced life’s uncertainties?

Jesus said, ” Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

Somehow, despite careful planning, preparation and calculated implementation of our plan in life, along the way something unexpected happens and suddenly we are in a very uncertain situation.

I like Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English‘s definition of “uncertainty” which says, “a situation which you are not sure about because you do not know what will happen”

Yes, “uncertainty” is that situation in life when you aren’t really sure of the outcome and all you can do is give your best at the given moment and leave the results to the Almighty God.

For all uncertainties that I experienced and I am facing in life, I learned two essentials things that give me assurance and strength:

Faith in the Divine Providence

You have to trust Jesus Christ who said “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

Surrender to His Will

Your faith will assure you that the Lord God Almighty has prepared the best solution for your uncertainty.

When you have entrusted your uncertainty on God’s hand and believe that He has the best option for you, then you must surrender to His will.

Of course, it is not easy to go through life’s uncertainties. I must say that it is through prayers and supplication, the intercession of your brothers and sisters in faith, that you will avail much to carry you through trials in life.

The message of Rev. David Jeremiah titled “Slaying the Giant of Worry” explains eloquently how we may overcome worry that may beset us in times of uncertainties.
