God’s Cone of Certainty
Looks like Isaac is headed toward the Florida Panhandle. Forecasters give us estimates as to where it will make landfall. Computer models take into account the surrounding weather circumstances. They are often very accurate but not always. Thus, we have the cone of uncertainty. It is a wide guess at the future direction of a storm.
God does not estimate. He is always accurate. His followers can live within the cone of certainty because he promises to always be with us. Isaiah 43:2 says,
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.”
Through hard times, trials, and even hurricanes God will take care of his people. Hold onto his word before, during, and after stressful times.
One thing is always certain. God is faithful.
