For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
Once again, it helps to have proper perspective. Our jobs, our wealth, our possessions, even our relationships will all come to an end. I’ve even heard one pessimist point out that all dating relationships end in either a breakup or death. Now of course it is the journey that makes the difference, but the point I’m trying to make here is that the things of this world are temporal. The Earth itself has an expiration date.
God, on the other hand, is for ever and ever. The alpha and the omega. The beginning and the end. In fact, as best as I can understand it, time doesn’t even apply to him. Today, tomorrow, a thousand years from now, a thousand years before Christ, they are all present to him. One reason why he knows how the end will come about is because he’s there now.
So when he says that he’ll be our guide to the end, we can have confidence that he will be. He’s already written that script and produced the movie, we just have to wait in line to see the show. Oh yeah, and it would help if we put our Faith and trust in him to be our guide and our light.
