This Ole’ World and One More

My Grandfather had a saying when going through a rough day. The saying was, “This ole’ world and one more”. After reading Daniel 12, I understand more what the saying meant. Even though life is not always pleasant now, we can look forward to a new life in a new world with God forever.

The time mentioned in today’s reading is the Tribulation. A time of worldwide hardships, disasters, famine, war, pain, and suffering before the Second Coming of Christ takes place. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt (v. 2).

Like Daniel, we cannot comprehend all of God’s ways. We go to Him in prayer and listen. We should respond to His directions when received. Keep in mind that there is a reward for those who honor God and promote His ways so that others are brought home to Christ.

This day with God will be amazing because we will be blessed and others will be blessed by you. Let us find comfort in the resurrection for there will be rest in heaven.
