Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The LORD is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.
Psalm 145:13, ESV
For millennia, the Judeo-Christian faith has been attempted to be snuffed out and declared dead, only to be found alive and vibrant. God’s chosen have fought against one another over time also, but God has a way of drawing His people together. He doesn’t forget His promises, nor does He walk away from those He loves. There are those who try to diminish the promises of God or paint Him in a vengeful way. It is true that God is holy, and for that reason, we, too, are to be holy. We are to be set apart and are not to partake of things that are detestable to Him. Sadly, we do, and that is why He sent us Jesus Christ. First, our Lord came for His chosen people, the Jews, and then He grafted us into the promise. It was not so we would become Jewish, but that all would become followers of the one, true God whom the Jewish people only knew partly, but in Christ was revealed the whole. We have the full revelation of God given to us in His Word, and in His Word, we find the eternal kingdom. In Christ, we are fully restored and given new life. In Christ, we can see the faithfulness of our Lord as He fulfills all of His promises and can faithfully trust that we will know Him fully as we enter into the fullness of His eternal Kingdom. In Him, we can know peace and comprehend the comforts that He has given to us all in Christ alone. Our Lord’s kingdom never ends, and His promises remain forever.
Let us pray. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger, and I ask you to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that in all I do today, I may please you. For into your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel watch over me, that the wicked foe have no power over me. Amen.
