Focusing on the Bright Future

In the first part of Hosea 1-13, we are told the future would be made difficult because the people would be looking for their happiness, needs, and desires from the world rather than from God. Now as listed in Hosea 2:14-23, we are told that God will restore Israel with a more bountiful harvest, with safety, and Israel would be a more righteous and just.

The objective is to turn the people more towards God’s way.  Similar to a relationship in which two work together as one to make the amazing happen, the Creator of more stars than we can count wants to bless us with more joys than the number of stars. He wants to make each day amazing and our tomorrows more amazing than today.

Lord, in your timing, all things will be made right. We know that You are for each of us and since we have accepted Your Son Jesus Christ into our heart, the future is bright. We can be at peace and focus on the good that will happen because of our trust in You. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
