Throughout life, there are times when we face broken dreams, heartaches and disappointments, but if we are believers in Jesus Christ, we have the consolation found in the Bible and in our relationship to Him. He has promised to never leave us nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5), and He also said that He would never lose not even one that was given into His care by the Father (John 6:37-40). This is our security! When all else in this life fails, we have an advocate...an attorney, if you will, that pleads our case before the Father. He holds us in the hollow of His hand and daily intercedes for us.

In His discussion of end times, Jesus gave these words of wisdom to His disciples: "But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man" (Luke 21:34-38).

Jesus said, "For where your treasure is there will your heart be also" (Luke 12:34). If our treasure is in earthly things, we are bound to be disappointed. However, if we sow to the glory of God, we will reap a harvest of joy one day. Remember, the things of this world are temporary, but the things of God will last for eternity. May we choose to invest our lives in Christ who will never disappoint us. Selah!
