Believer, the end is glorious

The world has been crazy lately in so many ways.  It’s been a time of suffering, fear and hopelessness for many.  And we don’t know what we may face tomorrow.  There is an anticipation (in America at least) that there will be a time of trouble very soon.  Turning our attention to the media has resulted in anxiety and fear of the future.  But when we turn our attention to the word of God we see that the end of all these things is glorious.

“Then the angel showed me a river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the main street of the city. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit and yielding a fresh crop for each month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be within the city, and His servants will worship Him. They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads.There will be no more night in the city, and they will have no need for the light of a lamp or of the sun. For the Lord God will shine on them, and they will reign forever and ever.”   Revelation 22:1-5

The days ahead may very well be challenging, but we have a sure word from God – we will see His face. Hold onto this hope and let it carry you through every difficulty.
