Have you ever bought a product with a lifetime guarantee? I’m sure most of us have. If you have, you likely did so because you believed the product would last for many years. After all, a lifetime guarantee means the product will last a lifetime, right? Now, here’s another question. Do you still have that product that was supposed to last a lifetime? Chances are, the lifetime guarantee was really not for your lifetime but the lifetime of the product itself. And exactly what is the lifetime of a product? Basically, a lifetime guarantee may not even worth the paper it was written on.
God has given us a lifetime guarantee. His guarantee is in writing, found in His Word. And His guarantee is not just worth the paper it is written on. It is worth more than all the wealth in the world. So, what exactly is this lifetime guarantee we have from God? God’s lifetime guarantee is found in the book of Isaiah: “I will be your God throughout your lifetime–until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.” (Isaiah 46:4, NLT)
God guarantees that He will always be our God. We are His creation and He will care for us, carry us through our lives and save us. That salvation comes in the form of His Son, Jesus Christ, who He gave as a ransom for our sins so that we may have eternal life. Jesus Himself said, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, ESV)
The lifetime guarantee that God gives us in Isaiah 46:4, like all of God’s promises, is one we can truly count on. His guarantee will last not just for our lifetime here on earth, but for eternity.
