"After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1
When something wrong happens in our world, when a crime is committed, our automatic response is, “Someone’s got to pay!” We have a mindset that is bent towards justice. We want to see wrongs righted. That isn’t just something we come up with on our own, however. That justice mindset is ingrained into our souls by the God of the universe, who is the ultimate Judge. In the book of Revelation, we read about the fact that God has the final word. He sets the final verdict. In the end, evil will not triumph. As you look at our world today, it can be easy to think that evil is winning. But keep in mind that what we see is only temporary. God, who reigns in eternity, has the final say. Have hope in the future and keep that justice-minded spirit as you go through each day!
Thank God for His ultimate victory over sin, death, and evil. Pray to keep a God-centered, justice-minded outlook on the world today.
When you read today’s headlines, keep in mind that everything our world is experiencing is temporary. Don’t let the bad news keep you distracted from the reality of the greatest news: God wins!
