June 26 – Alexander Ovechkin`s Guarantee

“We`re going to come back and win the series.” that was the guarantee given by Alexander Ovechkin, captain of NHL`s Washington Capitals referring to game 7, against the New York Rangers. His guarantee proved to be beyond his reach. New York won 4-3 and moved on to the next series. This prediction has a lesson for us all. Only our Creator can guarantee the future. Several relevant Bible verses come to mind. The Psalmist wrote, “My times are in your hand.” Solomon in Proverbs warned, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” The best response to these truths is to acknowledge our spiritual handicap and need of the Saviour. A song put it as follows-” Ì don`t know about tomorrow, I just live from day today. I don`t borrow from its sunshine, for its skies may turn to grey. I don`t worry over the future, for I know what Jesus said. And today I`ll walk beside Him, for He knows what is ahead.”
