As HIServant encouraging us to firmly press towards CHRIST through every current challenge,
Devotional: Isaiah 46:10 “I declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come. I say, ‘MY purpose will stand, and all MY good pleasure I will accomplish.”
Many CHRISTians are weary at this time given all the spiritual attacks, the further ratcheting up of the devil’s system, and the personal toll.
I remind myself of this, as such. “No goal is ever gained by giving up on GOD.”
I have seen miraculous healings in my own life and my wife’s also. Joseph being unjustly in prison for many, many years didn’t stop GOD.
HE put him there to be the very one GOD would use to interpret Pharaoh’s dream.
Not the career progression path that any of our flesh would have chosen, right?
Consider Jeremiah’s 40 years of being an abused and suffering prophet without a single convert ranks high in Today’s church thought…as someone who failed.
Stay the course.
Look at Paul! He was not apprehended by GOD until he was in his late 50’s!
But GOD planned that so a man who knew the Law better than anyone else…would be the one sent to us Gentiles.
Point being: GOD ALWAYS has sovereign purpose for each of HIS children.
So know this, beloved. “No goal is ever gained by giving up on GOD.”
Then what must we do? In the face of horrific abuse, in light of wicked people who fanatically refuse to relent?
Stay the course.
Many a faithful servant of GOD suffers. Look at Jeremiah for instance.
A failure by lukewarm CHRISTian church standards but! A firm and faithful witness according to GOD!
So my prayer for you is this reminder of HIS perfect purpose assigned prior…to your birth.
HIS supernatural rewards for such faithfulness may not be seen like we think in this life.
But GOD! HE gave us HIS WORD ahead of Time, prior to our first breath, so we’d always know our end goal is Heaven.
All Justice will be administered there. All Revenge and Retribution will be applied there. And!
Once we see HIM face to face, all the cares, worries, scorecards and more…will instantly and eternally fade away!
So! “Stay the course.”
We know how this ends. Revelation is clear. And! It’s fantastic news for every soul who believes in and on the glorious NAME of JESUS CHRIST!
GOD gives us this heavenly pep talk plainly in John 10:28-30.
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of MY hand.
29 MY FATHER, which gave them ME, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of MY FATHER’s hand.
30 I and MY FATHER are one!”
You are eternally secured in CHRIST so press on! Your perfect and forever rewards are in Heaven as HE promised.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 “HE has made everything beautiful in its time. HE has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what GOD has done from beginning to end.”
Therefore! In the meantime, we pray and press onward knowing our Alpha and Omega made HIS unbreakable promises PRIOR TO creating Time itself!
Give HIM all praise!
So I tell you the Truth, “Stay the course!!” HE’s just one breath away from bringing us across the finish line together!
Surrender then every thought, fear, worry, doubt and concern to THE ONE WHO endlessly loves you!
Amen and amen!
