​The promises of the future may not seem likely in light of the present…

1 Corinthians 3:18-20

Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”
…trust in God!

​God does not exist for the sake of man.

Revelation 4:11

“You are worthy, our Lord and God! You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power.
You are worthy because You created all things. They were created and they exist. This is the way You planned it.”
We were made not primarily that we may love God (though we were made for that too) but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which the Divine love may rest ‘well pleased’. #CSLewis
