“The sun shall no longer be your light by day, Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light, And your God your glory. Isaiah 60:19 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/isa.60.19.NKJV
For those who are followers of Jesus Christ, we need to remember this promise.
This world is not our permanent home.
The way things are now is not how they will always be.
Some day the world will change forever.
Revelation 6:1 NKJV — Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.”
Revelation tells of the Lamb opening the seals and the changes the world under goes.
It’s not a pretty picture, but in the middle is praise.
Revelation 7:9-10 NKJV — After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
Revelation 7:11-12 NKJV — All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
What better way to remember the truth of the future which awaits than by worshipping Jesus today.
Life doesn’t always bring us hearts full of gladness, but salvation should always bring us to praise.
Let us remember the promises of God and rejoice in the salvation of Jesus Christ!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for salvation. Thank You for Your promise of eternal life with You. Lord, I can not even imagine what it will be like to be in Your presence, to never need the Sun or Moon again because You will shine continually. Lord, I can not contain my wonder at Your incredible blessing to us in the gift of salvation. Thank You for Your sacrifice. Thank You for Your promise of eternal life. Thank You for reminding me to praise You daily, practicing the joy of eternity right here in today. Thank You. Amen.
