Tuesday, November 30 | Luke 21:29-33

29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.


32 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Jesus is the Living Word. And Romans 10:8 says His Word is in our mouths and in our hearts. His Word will never pass away, and neither will we; we will live forever with Him.

At the beginning of this chapter Jesus prophesied that the great temple would be destroyed and His Word came to be fulfilled 40 years later. We can trust His Word. Unlike the things in this world that will pass away, bur we can trust His Word always be there for us. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. I must keep the temporary challenges of today in the context of His eternal Word. Jesus, the living Word, thank you for coming into this world for us.

It's encouraging to know that the difficult things are not out of God's control. We tend to feel like the world is spinning out of control... yet to know that God is allowing his plan to play out, and that it's a beautiful plan, gives us a new perspective and fresh hope.

Many of us look forward to fall. It is beautiful because vegetation is dying and turning beautiful colors. Likewise, we are experiencing disease, government turmoil, inflation and uncertainty. Things are preparing to change. Winter and quiet are near. But Spring and hope are coming. Let us pray in expectation for the awaking of new life.
