Assurance and God’s Un-Crossed

God is making all things new. One day tornadoes, death, your tears, and disbelief will be no more. It is hard, and in fact impossible, to fully plumb the depths of the act of God to “make all things new.” There are days where particular aspects of this truth pierce my soul like a grace laced dagger. Today, it is the reality that one day I’ll rest fully assured in the fact that God wasn’t crossing His fingers when he declared my righteousness that was based on the person and work of Jesus Christ. One day, my belief in that reality won’t be as fickle as it is today. While I sit in a dimly-lit, overly crowded coffee shop doubting that everything is going to be okay, one day I’ll sit at his feet and never doubt again.

God is making all things new, Christian; even your ability to believe in His work of making all things new. The grace of God will transform the way you ask for assurance, your inability to remain awe-struck, and your cynicism toward captivated worship of God for all eternity.
