Psalm 111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
When I was younger, when I would see the word “GUARANTEED” on things I thought, “Well this will be good forever, it is guaranteed.” Why in the world would they guarantee something if it would break? That just did not make sense to me.
However, as I grew older, I learned a few things about Guarantees. One of those things was the Guarantee was only as good as the company who made the claim. As a young boy, I believed that every big company which had enough money to make something would just be there forever in case anything went wrong with their product. Oh, the innocence of childhood. As I have grown older, and I guess a little wiser, now I know that not all companies are reputable and not every person is trustworthy. Sadly, this colors the decisions that all adults must make. So how do I make big decisions now? If the guarantee matters, then I look at the manufacturer to see how long they have been in business. I try to find out if the products they have made have had problems. Did they take care of the problems if they did? I just want to know a little about who is making this GUARANTEE.
God’s Guarantees meet all those criteria. One thing we can rely on is that God has been around for a long time, (a very long time). God has always taken care of the products He has made, (Us). He has a great retirement program that has never been beaten, (Heaven). He is as stable as anything anyone can think of, (and better). In our verse today, it says, “He hath given meat unto them that fear Him.” This simply means He has provided for those who have given themselves to Him to love and serve Him. “He will ever be mindful of his covenant,” says He will never break a promise. This means His Guarantees are absolutely solid. You can trust them forever.
In a world that seems mixed up on values and promises, it is good to know at least one thing is still always true. The Word of God has never been proven wrong. Never! Why, because it is never wrong. You can rely on God and His word. This my friends is GUARANTEED.
