Someday

I decided to use the title of the chapter for my post title today... Someday...

Remember the verse from Monday -

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!
Psalm 27:13

Getting back to the topic of the chapter today...

How often have I used the word Someday as a statement of acceptance of something that will never come.  Tripp uses the words... "fatalistic resignation".
The end of a dream.

For many, "someday, maybe, someday."  leaves little hope.  It is not a declaration of what is to come, but more of what probably never will.

This is not the same as the what Psalm 27:13 expresses.

I wrote about Giants being overcome and conquered, but there is more.
David has put His trust in God, not in the things of this earth... not in things that will fail.

Many of the "somedays" that come from us include things we have very little control over.
Many of the "somedays" require that others cooperate.
Many of the "somedays" may lead us to manipulate to get what we want.
This is not trust in God, this is trust in self.

I am not saying it is bad to have goals and dreams... I am saying that I need to focus on the promises of God rather than my own selfish desires.

Trust in God isn't a thin hope in some not very sure outcome.  Hope in God is rather a present investment in a future guarantee.

I don't know about you there are very few things I can invest in that are guaranteed...
My 401K can plummet (and has) in a day.   Property values can take a dive through no fault of my own.  Even investing in an education doesn't guarantee a job, though it helps, it is not guaranteed.
The only investment that comes with a guarantee is investing in the One that has promised to deliver and that will never break His promise.

  1. i totally agree with your conclusion Ryan. The 401(K) and property values can and will change but God never does. I will stick with Him.

    1. Never a risk of a failed investment with God, that is for sure.

  2. As Bill said, I'm choosing to stick with God's promises, Ryan. He is the only one who will never fail us.
    Blessings!
