Revelation 7:16-17 -- On God's Protection and Peace

"They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."
Revelation 7:16-17

I think this is a very cool scripture, talking about how God will take care of the righteous. The sun part is especially nice in the summer, but really... I love that God will protect us from harsh circumstances, take care of us, and give us a reason to rejoice in the place of our sorrow.

Some days it is hard to see the goal and to stay headed in the right direction when you can't really see where you are going, but we seem to be able to see the other path with perfect clarity... or at least the part of it that is attractive. Satan is good at that, so it is good sometimes to get a taste of the peace and joy that God offers us... even in the midst of the cataclysmic events in Revelation. :)
