In a world fueled by controversy, negativity and pessimism, its easy to lose sight of the positive. Affirmations, encouragement and uplifting words often vanish from memories, erased by daily criticism that wound hearts. This isn’t the only thing to recede, disappearing like the tide going out to sea.
Despite this harsh reality, there is one truth that never vanishes. According to Psalm 139:13-16, you were knit together in your mother’s womb. In fact, Jesus takes this one step further, reminding Nicodemus of God’s perfect plan. According to John 3:16, the expression “so loved” in the Greek refers to from vanishing point to vanishing point. In other words, before you were born and until your death, God’s love extends throughout time.
When idividuals become aware of this aspect of God’s nature, revival can begin. Unfortunately, an invisible enemy has blinded the minds of unbelievers, 2 Corinthians 4:4. All the while, believers are under a difficult kind of attack, pulled in different directions by the world, Galatians 5:16-18. If this wasn’t enough, the devil is busy stealing, killing and destroying souls. As the sun sets on another day, don’t allow your thoughts to forget the promises within God’s word, Joshua 1:8, from vanishing point to vanishing point.
