Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” – Numbers 13:30 NIV
The Lord is a God of possibilities. He didn’t promise the children of Israel land that they could not possess. He promised them land that He knew they were meant to live in. They took a look at the people who currently lived in the land flowing with milk and honey and declared it impossible to take over. They had so little faith!
How often do we question what God has promised us? How often do we doubt the richness and joy we will have in Heaven? Do material possessions matter here on earth? The Lord knows we need things, and when it matters, He always provides for us, or He shows us what we can appreciate more about what we already have. He doesn’t ask us to manifest wealth, because He has already promised the world to us. We just have to follow Him and trust that everything will work out. Amen.
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. – 1 Peter 5:10 KJV
It is normal to expect some suffering in this life. Trials test our faith and make us stronger. God’s grace will settle in us, and everything won’t seem so hard.
The new house we moved into requires a lot of repairs. The furnace and air conditioner need to be replaced. The septic tank needed to be pumped and a plastic part had to be put back in place. It all seems a bit overwhelming. At least my little boy is recovering from his cold.
Heaven is move-in ready. Everything will be perfect, including us. Nothing will need to be replaced. We will all be made new already. What a glorious day that will be. Amen.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled that does not fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. – 1 Peter 1:3-5 NKJV
Each one of us is a trust fund baby: we are heirs to an eternal inheritance through Jesus Christ. We are rich beyond measure!
Regardless of the trials we face in life, our Lord shows us mercy when we come to Him in prayer and trust Him.
It is our hope that we will see our loved ones who have passed away, not just in our dreams, but in Heaven on that glorious day. Salvation through faith is powerful. Amen.
