What is your confidence level in God today? Do you believe He is capable to see you through any situation? Solomon has a spiritual breakthrough as he examines the “”vanity” of life and gives us three aspects of God’s eternal actions. God’s actions are permanent, “it shall be forever.” God’s actions are effective and complete, “nothing can be added to it.” And God’s actions are totally secure, “nothing taken from it.” This should give us great confidence and, as the writer puts it, the purpose is that no matter what we face, we will fear God. That’s not the cringing of a slave before a cruel master, but the submission of an obedient child to a loving parent. If we fear God, we need not fear anything else, for He is in control.
Relying on Him,
Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
