“No longer will you have the sun for light by day, nor for brightness will the moon give you light; but you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, and your God for your glory. Your sun will no longer set, nor will your moon wane; for you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be over.” (Isaiah 60:19-20)
What the Lord is promising is more than we are able to comprehend. The Lord will hold us in His presence forever and the system of this universe and its temporary nature will pass away. Forever verses the few score years of this world’s existence. This is what the Lord offers. Step back and see what the Lord plans and live in His plans now and forever. The whole world is nothing compared to the Lord.
Lord, if I step back, I see how fleeting this world is, where moth destroys and the thief steals. Help me to come to the place where I know that Your promises are forever. Guide me into the way of Your everlasting peace that I may abide in You now and forever. Help me overcome the obstacles of doubt in order to live in the truth You have revealed from this day onward.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead as many as would come through You into everlasting life. Help me, I pray, to see more clearly the truth that has been revealed and then help me to live in the truth You have revealed. In all things, guide me by the power of the Holy Spirit that I would live in You as You live in me for the Father’s glory. May I be Your faithful servant this day. Amen.
