Re: Verse reading–Luke 21:5-24 (day five)
Did you see it when you read this passage? Did your heart grab hold of it when you read the promise? Tucked inside this passage of immeasurable gloom and doom are words of comfort from the Lord Himself. They are words that evidence a greater hope in the midst of destruction and confusion. They are words that keep the human heart “centered” and “focused” on a kingdom that that will not be shaken or overcome. It is a promise He makes over and over in the scriptures. “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” Matthew 28:20, “Abide in me and I in you”, John 15:4. “For I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.” Luke 21:15 (because I am with you, living inside you).
Does that promise bring you joy and peace in the midst of circumstances and tension? Does it give you less cause to worry and stress over the future? Does it give you the confidence and determination to live today for His Glory?
