“They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!” (Revelation 6:16)
What will happen in the moment when this age fades away and reality is exposed for those who have lived lives believing that they were their own rulers? It is not hard to imagine that people such as these, and like some whom you know, will be terrified because they finally know the truth. Our Lord has told us that the truth will set us free, but some want to remain captive to their own delusions.
Lord, where I am delusional, shatter the delusion. Even in the moment of discovery, what good will it do to think I have enough power yet to run to the rocks and hide from You? Oh, the vanity of pride! Guide me to repent and believe so that I may live according to Your word of hope. Lead me away from the vanity of this age to live into the truth of eternity. Do not let me think I can hide my face from You, Lord.
My Lord and Savior, save me this day from the idea that I can run and hide on that day. Lead me according to Your goodness to live into the hope You give according to Your word. Help me, O Lord, so that I may ever be guided by You. When that day comes that this age melts away into eternity, help me to look forward and rejoice in seeing You face to face. Amen.
