The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

In every era God has had His faithful people–people who have done His will and enjoyed His favor. Noah was “a preacher of righteousness” (2 Peter 2:5) as he labored to build the ark, and he “found grace in the eyes of the Lord” (Genesis 6:8). Abraham heard the call of God and set out on a long journey, not even knowing where he was going (Hebrews 11:8); his faithful obedience brought blessing to all families of the earth (Genesis 12:1-3). Faithfully for over forty years Jeremiah gave God’s word to an unbelieving people, and he lived to see God’s word proved true. Mary said, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word” (Luke 1:38); and she became the mother of God’s Son and our Savior.
God’s faithful people may feel lonely at times, for many unfaithful are choosing the wide road that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:13-14). Elijah once thought that he was the only faithful one in Israel, but the Lord knew that there were seven thousand more (1 Kings 19:18).
Yes, God has His faithful people in the world today–people who not only do His will but also share His Word and help others to do His will. In this world they may experience either prosperity or persecution, but in the world to come they will have joy forever.
