But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.2 Peter 3:10
The Day of the Lord
No one knows when the Lord will come. Many have tried to speculate and guess. However, only God knows the day and hour. This verse says that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. This tells us two things. First, God has all authority and is the only one who knows. We can trust him since he knows when that day is. Second, we need to prepare for that day. We need to make sure we are focusing on him and getting to know him better so that we will recognize him when he comes.
The things of this world will pass away, so we should not focus our time on them. This verse says that even the heavens will pass away. Make sure you are spending time with the Lord so you are ready!
A Prayer to Remember
I trust in you. I know you know when you will return for your people. Oh what a glorious day that will be. May I always take hope in that day! Amen.
