“But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men” (2 Peter 3:7).

It will come soon enough.  We all will wind up at the gate and will face Jesus.  What?  Seventy or eighty years?  Perhaps not that long.  And yes, there will be a final day.  Meanwhile, the liars will lie, and the scoffers will scoff.  But you, what will you do?  Will you come to your Maker on His terms?  Will you submit yourself to the Lord God and learn to love Him as He loves you?

Lord, You know all that I need.  I listen to the world who say, “Where is your God?”  Help me turn to You in all seasons that I may humbly walk in Your presence.  Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You alone is hope, for You are the Maker of all things.  Let me not fear judgement so much as look forward to being with You forever.  Guide me in Your goodness, O Lord.

Thank You, Jesus, that by Your stripes I am healed.  Lead me according to Your goodness to know that in You is life and liberty.  You have given me grace.  I have all the grace I need because of You.  Help me to live into the life to which I have been called knowing that in You is all truth.  Lead me now and forever, Lord, so that I may walk with You as You created me to walk.  Amen.
