“Trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you” (1 Peter 4:19b, NLT).

The mouse I use with my laptop is dying. It’s been a good little mouse and I’ve really appreciated all the help it’s given me the last few years, but it has failed me. Soon I’ll have to get a new one. I have also appreciated everything my body has been to me and done for me, but one day it will fail me too. Fortunately I will be able to trade it in for a new one.

Everything in this life will fail eventually and we are resigned to this. It’s the way of the universe. The only thing—the only one—we can count on is God. He has life inherent in himself and can never fail us. His nature, his attributes, his character and his love are perfect and eternal. We can entrust our lives to him, in perfect confidence and with no reservations.
