Re:Verse reading–Psalm 22 (day three)
“All the ends of the earth
will remember and turn to the Lord…”  Solzhenitsyn famously stated the converse of David’s prophetic vision: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”  What is the “this” to which he referred?  Look around, and look inside your own heart.  You will see.  But creation is groaning, stretching toward the day when it will be renewed.  And mankind, suffering in its own physical and spiritual squalor, will know God again.  Some will reject him, as many already have.  But even as David faced the cruelties of those who had set their faces against him, what he knew of God told him that it could not end like this.  And so it is in our day.  God will not be satisfied until this whole universe is restored.  The end will be only the beginning.
