Testimony of Faith: Our World Belongs to God #12
Even now, as history unfolds in ways we know only in part,
we are assured that God is with us in our world,
holding all things in tender embrace and bending them to his purpose.
The confidence that the Lord is faithful gives meaning to our day and hope to our years.
The future is secure, for our world belongs to God.
