For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.(Hebrews 13:14) 

Right now in our country and on our planet,  more things are wrong than right! As a result, this reality creates conflict inside the life of a believer. We want to cry out, “God, how long will you tolerate men and women living with this mentality? How long will you tolerate the treatment that we inflict on each other, to hurt each other, to manipulate each other, and to abuse each other? How long will evil reign?” I don’t know about you, but those are my biggest questions.  

In the Scriptures, we find the answer very clearly: “Until God makes it right.” God is the only One who can make things right! We need to stop looking to Washington to make things right. They have made more things wrong than right! Although we have a wonderful system of government, we are fallible people who make mistakes. Some of them are willfully wrong, and we need to recognize them as such. 

It can be tempting to put all of your hope into human beings, or even into a system that is supposed to serve its people well. Ultimately, we will always be disappointed and left wanting more while we are on this earth, because we were not created for this earth. Our home is in heaven, where all will be made right by God one day in the future. We can look forward to that day – in fact, we should look forward to that glorious day. Until then, we have to remember that we are just passing through, doing the best we can to be obedient to God in a fallen world. On that day, His work of redemption and sanctification will be complete in us, when we step into eternity in heaven with Him.

    That’s right people live in disgusting filth and I don’t understand it it’s so bad but I can’t worry about other people I have to worry about myself and make sure I’m on the right path. I know one thing I am going to be with I keep praying asking for forgiveness that’s where I want to be.
