READING: Job 37-39, Psalm 103, Revelation 21-22
Well, we’ve come to the end of 2020. The craziness of this past year has made me long even more for the time when we will rest with God forever—when He will, as the one on the throne said in today’s reading, make everything new. Everything new – that’s incredible.
- Tears will be gone.
- Grief, crying, pain will be defeated.
- Those who have rejected God will no longer influence culture; nothing unclean will enter God’s city.
- Night will be no more since God will be the light.
- Death will not reign, and we believers will live forever and ever.
Everything new—I can’t wait. The hope and promises of God have carried us through a traumatic year, and He will continue to carry us into the future. In fact, the future is about Him, not about us. So, with that truth in mind, I cry out with the apostle John, “Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!” (Rev 22:20).
PRAYER: “Thank You, Lord, for making all things new in Your time.”
