What is the meaning of history? Where is history leading us?

"In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever" (Daniel 2:44). What is the meaning of history? Where is history …

Trust in the Lord now and look forward to being with Him in heaven.

Psalms 36:1-12- Read about God’s ‘steadfast love’ and rejoice in Him: ‘Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens...How precious is Your steadfast love, O God!...O continue Your steadfast love to those who know You...’(5,7,10). Rejoicing in the Lord’s ‘steadfast love’ is quite different from taking His love for granted. We dare not say, …

Ye gates, lift up your heads on high.

"Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

The Lord is great. He’s our great Saviour.

Learning From God's Word

“May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, ‘The Lord is great!’” (Psalm 70:4).

In times of trouble, we need to lift up our eye and look to the Lord. When we’re feeling low, this is exactly the thing that we cannot do. We need to be lifted up by the Lord. What we cannot do for ourselves, the Lord does for us. When the Lord lifts us up, we do not say, “I have pulled myself together.” We say, “The Lord is great.” What a great Saviour we have! Let us rejoice and be glad in him.

It won’t be long.

Learning From God's Word

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

May God teach us to live our life in the light of eternity.

“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him — 10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

“We will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:17-18).

Here, on earth, our life is full of highs and lows, happy times and sad times. May the Lord help us to look above all these things – and catch a glimpse of the eternal glory he is preparing for us. In an attitude of gratitude, let us live our life to please him and give glory to him.

Psalms 120:1-121:8  -  ‘Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips’ (120:2). God calls us to ‘believe the truth’, ‘love the truth’ and ‘follow the truth’. We are to be people who ‘do what is true’ (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11; 3 John 3-4; John 3:21). How can we be such people? We must keep our eyes fixed …
