There are three things which are always true.  No matter what happens, no matter when or where you are, there are three things which you can always hold on to as TRUTH!

            First, God Loves You!  As a matter of fact, God loves you even if you don’t believe in Him.  He loves you even if you don’t love Him back.  He loves you on your worst day when you just can’t seem to get things together.  He loves you as you are and because He loves you, He wants to change your life.  And there is nothing – absolutely nothing – that can come between you and His love for you.  

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Romans 8:30-39)

            Second, God is good!  He loves, He creates, He is merciful, and He leads those who turn to Him.  His goodness is seen in the beauty of creation from beautiful sunsets to vast mountain ranges.  His goodness is seen in acts of kindness and compassion. 

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!  Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!  (Psalm 34:8)

            Finally, God is sovereign!  Sovereign is a word we don’t use very often today.  When I think of sovereignty, I think of a king sitting on a throne overlooking a vast kingdom.  That king is sovereign over his kingdom.  There is no one more powerful than the king.  He has many people living in his kingdom.  Some of those people do things which the king doesn’t like.  But that doesn’t change the fact that the kingdom belongs to the king and he is sovereign over it.  That’s what God is.  God is sovereign over all creation.  We live under God’s sovereignty.

To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.  (1 Timothy 1:17)

            Even in the midst of turbulent times when our culture becomes filled with lies and half-truths, it is good to know that real truth exists.  And we can build our lives on the foundation which is found in knowing the truth about God.
