Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Rev 21:1-4 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, in times of pain or weariness, help me to be mindful of the joy You have prepared for me, as well as the promises and provision of strength and power to overcome that I have through You now. I look forward with great anticipation to living forever with You in the place You have prepared for me. Help me live life to the fullest with You in the place where I am now. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
