“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).
Whether it is the end of this life for you or me, or the end of the age, it will come and when it does. It will happen quickly. Do not be surprised at the twists and turns along the way. The Lord has told us ahead of time so that when the end comes we will not be surprised. Too many do not heed the warning of the Lord. Do not be one of them. Know that the Lord will bring about all He has promised.
Lord, this age is turbulent and uncertain. Even in the best of times, it is still filled with uncertainty. Guide me, Lord, in the way of life that looks to You so that I may be guarded by You and Your word. Your word is truth. Let me not cling to this world which will burn up, but be renewed by Your spirit in my mind, heart, and soul. Guide me dear Lord to live as You would have me live.
Come, Holy Spirit, and guard my heart and mind. Lead me into the peace that surpasses all understanding so that no matter what is happening in this age, I may be at peace knowing that all things are in the Father’s hands. Guide me today to keep my mind and heart in Your hands. Lead me to do what is fitting for this day and guard me against the adversary and his tricks. Amen.
