What is truly guarantee 100%
“Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.” 2 Corinthians 5:5 (NIV)

So many times we purchase items simply because the tag reads a 100% guarantee. This may apply to furniture, clothes, food items anything that may offer assurance that you will be satisfied a hundred percent or be refunded 100%.
You may also have been offered a bumper-to-bumper guarantee on vehicles, appliances garden tools and a laundry list of others items only to be duped by that unexplained proverbial fine writing, which comes so fine that you need the Hubble Space Telescope to read it.
I do believe that I have reached the conclusion that there is nothing manmade that is truly 100% guaranteed.
Nothing, nothing I mean nothing beyond the shadow of doubt, nothing manmade is guaranteed without fault.
Its impossible for man to create, make, invent or put together anything that is flawless; even our lies are not and if we say so we lie.
When we place our hopes in manmade guarantees, we are setting ourselves up for failure even if it says that we will be given back all that we purchased for the items.
How can you get back all that you put into something when that something may leave you in a most time consuming, unpredictable, haphazard, life threatening position?
How can you get your life back based on a human’s guarantee?
As long as the seasons will follow each other like lobsters marching on the ocean floors, even the most impressive bridges will crack, roads will forever be in need of constant repairs and buildings will fall and crumble to the earth.
Man things have an expiration date just as sure as water rust iron and puts hickeys on alligator heads.
God given splendors like, sunrises and sunsets, oceans rushing to the shores, purple mountains’ majesty and His infinite wisdom are guaranteed to never cease to exist.
The next time you look for a 100 percent guarantee on anything, look no further than what God said He would guarantee and those guarantees are found in his Holy Word.
Lord, make me to search no farther than Your Holy Word for all the guarantees that I would ever need on everything that will carry me through life without breaking down do to
man-u-factured failed parts.—Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
When God gives His guarantee you can bet your life on it!
