IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
You live in a world where evil appears to win, the wicked prosper, and the righteous experience defeat. In the scope of eternity, your time on earth does not even register on a timeline. Your life matters, and you will find peace and blessing—even in chaos—by following and trusting me. But in time, I will eradicate evil, and the wicked will get what they desire: life apart from me.
But there is so much more for my children. An age is coming where the Messiah will rule for eternity. King Jesus will serve, and it will be a place of love, hope, peace, and joy. Natural enemies will play and care for and live with one another. Wisdom and my glory will cover the earth, and the hope you desire will never disappear. That day is coming, but today you can experience it in part. Seek me, and you will find me. Call on me, and I will answer. Step out in faith and be empowered to love and serve.
Need a miracle in your life or someone else’s? Keep your hope in God. Miracles do happen, so ask God for one and trust him for the results.
