Until we die…

For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and he will guide us until we die. Psalm 48:14

Sometimes we can read God’s word and skip over certain verses or not really stop to consider what they are saying to us. Some verses can seem so simple that we miss the depth of what they are truly saying.

We’ve talked before about God’s unchanging character and nature but with it comes a promise that is worth reflecting upon. He will guide us until we die.

If you have ever been on a tour where you were part of a group that had a guide then you understand the concept of how important the guide can be. In fact the reason tours are so popular as opposed to people just venturing out on their own all the time is because people like the idea of a guide that will look out for them, tell them everything they need to know about the tour and point out things that they could never have known on their own.

Most importantly, people rest emotionally on tours although they might be doing lots of walking; their minds are at rest because the burden and responsibility of the tour is on the guide.

Think about that for a moment. If we can put such rest in a tour guide then what are we to do with God Himself who guides our life and knows everything there is to know about our journey.

When it comes to guiding us until we die, we need to remind ourselves that as believers, physical death is only the beginning. We get to spend eternity with our Lord and no matter how our lives are here, whether painful or full of great blessing, it all pales in comparison to what is coming next…
