Is it true that God is working all things together for our good and for His glory?
The book of Revelation teaches us that this is so. However, that does not mean this truth will always be obvious to us. In fact, according to Revelation, things are going to get worse before they get better. This is why we must trust in God’s plan and know that He is in control of all things, accomplishing His purposes despite how it may sometimes seem.
The book of Revelation also teaches us how we ought to live in the time we have left. As we approach the world, we need to recognize that the window of time we have is closing. As a result, we need to make sure we leverage the opportunities we have now before they are gone.
We find peace in God when we submit our circumstances to Him. No matter what goes on around us in culture, we do not need to despair. We were born in this time for a reason. He has given us opportunities and a sphere of influence, and He calls us to minister to others in that sphere.
