If it is better to spend just one day in our Lord’s presence than a thousand years here, just imagine an eternity of peace. As we watch while the world is shattered to pieces and many want power, there is comfort knowing that eternity with our Lord will not consist of any of this chaos. There are a lot of people who are angry and confused and will seek answers everywhere except the Bible. They try to fill a Christ shaped void in their lives with earthly things. They resort to really desperate things with absolutely no remorse and still find no peace. Life without Christ is a very empty feeling for these people. No amount of power or control will ever measure up to the peace that can be found through Jesus Christ.
As for the people who are victims, not only of public cruelty but those in the privacy of their own homes, there is a God who loves. We may not see it because heavenly answers many times are too big for the human eye. Love knows no barriers. As we are drawn to one another in love through adversity, God will demonstrate His awesome peace. Prayer is the most beautiful thing one person can do for another. Prayer opens the floodgates of heaven to be poured on the object of prayer. Prayers are free. Prayers are felt. There are many who would appreciate a prayer today.
A single day in your courts
is better than a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.
For the Lord God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The Lord will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right.
