One of the things that set God apart from all others is His ability to tell us what is going to happen. We read about this in Isaiah 46, where He says only He knows the end from the beginning.
An amazing example of this is found in Psalm 22, and it’s almost surprising how many people are not aware of it.
Psalm 22:11 says, “Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help.”
If you read the entire chapter carefully, you begin to realize that this is a conversation that Jesus has on the cross.
This psalm was written a thousand years before that world-changing event!
It describes a man being mocked on the cross. A man who is so thirsty his mouth feels like a piece of dry pottery. He even mentions that his tormentors are casting lots for his clothes. All these things are described in the New Testament, and even some of the language Jesus used on the cross is seen here for the first time.
God is in charge of all things, all the time. Including your situation. He raised Jesus from the dead, and He will provide life eternal for you if you call on Him.
He knows the end from the beginning.
Lord, you know all things. No one else does. That alone should give us confidence that you will be with us always. Amen.
