Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God will not falter! In a world where love-based justice so seldom prevails, God is our only absolute assurance that heaven's form of justice will ultimately triumph. This hope for all lands and peoples is for Jesus, the Servant of the Lord. He promised to return and bring God's truth and love-based justice with him. Maranatha (1 Corinthians 16:22), come O Lord!

My Prayer...

Righteous and merciful Father, I am sick of the corruption in our world and the injustice done to good but powerless people. Please send Jesus back soon, and bring with him the righteous and just rule of your Kingdom. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
