Occasionally I come across something I wish would not end. It might be some food or drink that is absolutely incredible, a great movie or book, a perfect evening under the night sky or a great interaction with a friend.
It seems more often I am eager for something to end. It might be a long, difficult week, an illness, an awkward social event, a mundane task. I am okay with these things coming to an end.
There is something I always look forward to that scripture says will never end.
7His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.Isaiah 9:7
I long for the day when I live completely under the authority of the government of Jesus. I long to live with the certainty that I am ruled with fairness and justice. I long to know peace that doesn’t end.
Until then, I live knowing he is already ruling my life with fairness and justice and that I experience his peace everyday. In the midst of it all, I look forward to the day when the not yet will be reality.
What do you experience that you wish would not end? How does that help you appreciate the rule and reign of Jesus already, knowing it is not yet as it will be?
