When we see how God poured His mercy and grace on our lives based on His essence, His plan and the finished work of Christ, we can plan on His grace being the only policy toward us in the future. “Surely (meaning ‘only’) goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23:6). If God loved us when we were rebellious, ungodly men to the point where He sent His Son to be condemned and die on our behalf, how much more will He now keep us, preserve us and freely give us all things?
Our future is as sure as what God has accomplished already for us in the past in the gift of His Son. In other words, “Tis grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home.” Whatever you may face in the coming days will be covered by God’s hand. You can rest in confidence and assurance for all time and eternity because, “He will cover you with his feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart” (Psalm 91:4, NIV).
