A Galaxy Far Away

He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  Hebrews 13:5

Everything seemed better when the universe was safe and when all the enemies had been defeated. Peace reigned supreme. What a great feeling. Then the lights came on and you left the theater. Once out the door, you had to battle thorough a haze of cigarette smoke, trek through the crowds to the parking lot, and then fight traffic on the interstate on the way home. Maybe total peace had not been accomplished

Or life seems good and love surrounds you as you sit before a blazing fireplace with that special person next to you, while a George Michael song plays. Then the phone rings and a telemarketer wants to sell you burial insurance. “Life ends,” you are told, and the mood is broken.

But there is a galaxy where the enemies have no presence. They were conquered forever centuries ago and peace does reign. And there is a mansion with a fireplace where love is never interrupted.

The things of this world—the enemies and the interruptions—will never be defeated while we are here. We must step out of the theater of reality and enter the world of the supernatural. The place where Christ reigns and love lives. The place where our fears are left behind and life eternal is good.

I have God’s assurance that He will never leave my side and will always defend me. The Word does not say it will be perfect; it just says it will not be lonely, and defeat has been defeated.

Anyone can go to this galaxy now by opening God’s Word, allowing Him to speak, and turning control of their life over to the Lord of Lords. The world will then make perfect, uninterrupted, and peace-filled sense.

Don’t wait. The Galaxy beckons. An eternal empire with the King of Kings on His throne. It’s a box office hit. Don’t miss it.
