Deitrich Bonhoeffer on certainty

What is certain is that we are always allowed to live in the nearness of and under the presence of God. What is certain is that this life God has made available for us is a completely new life. For us nothing is impossible anymore, because for God nothing is impossible. No earthly power can touch us without God’s will. Danger and trouble only drive us nearer to God. What is certain is that we do not have to demand and yet we are allowed to ask for everything. It is certain is that our joy is hidden in suffering—in death is our life hidden. Certain is that in all those things we are in fellowship, and this fellowship sustains us. ~Deitrich Bonhoeffer, “Our Meaning is in Jesus”
