The Bible is a treasure chest of wisdom, knowledge, guidance, comfort, and so much more. God has much to say to you. From Genesis to Revelation, God speaks through compelling life stories, the history of nations, richly meaningful poetry, and eye-opening prophecy. And here’s a comforting reality—every word of God’s Word is intended to meet your need.
Are you discouraged about your present circumstances and fearful about the future? Does it feel like your day-to-day life is reduced to putting one foot in front of the other and trying to survive? Maybe you’re on the lookout for someone who cares and who can help you. What if I told you that I have a friend who fits that description—perfectly?
Friend, we don’t know many of the details about what Heaven will be like. But that’s no reason to assume that our time on earth will be superior to spending eternity with Jesus in Heaven. Unless Jesus comes back while you’re still living, you will experience death. But, for Christians, there’s nothing but good news.
Remember two things. First, God has never needed a majority to accomplish His will. Frequently He has called individual men and women to lead, especially during dark and desperate times. Second, we have God on our side. He rules. He will carry out His plans.
As human beings, we certainly don’t need instruction on the many ways to stress out. We’re masters at doing this! What we’re not so good at is simply trusting God. He knows that you and I aren’t robots. He didn’t make us that way. We need time to sleep, to eat, and to rest—and to go on vacation every so often.We can’t keep working all the time.
