Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God's promises stand through the ages. He has fulfilled them in many different ways. He has punished evil nations, redeemed Israel according to his promises, and sent Jesus as the Savior and Redeemer for all people. Maybe most importantly for us, Jesus stands at the edge of history, waiting to return and bring full redemption for God's people and salvation for those everywhere who long for his return (2 Timothy 4:8).

My Prayer...

Sovereign Lord, I see so much injustice in the world. I long for your truth, righteousness, and justice to triumph over the evil and injustice of our fallen creation. While I long for the return of Jesus, my heart also breaks for the many who do not know Jesus and those who have rebelled against your will. Please, dear Lord, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, and may the triumph of your will begin with me. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
